Lipovac Territory

Grapevines are planted along the prepared stone terraces facing south-west slopes. Throughout the day, stones accumulate and retain heat from the sun. Due to good heat capacity of these stones, they are capable to give back heat at night. This is how grapes get maximum amount of sugar in them.

 

A Place under the Sun

The total area of the vineyards is 22 hectares. The vineyards are located 400 meters above sea level. These lands have been chosen for winemaking since they are the best in terms of topography and soil characteristics. Građani Mountain slopes are perfect for growing white autochthonous grapevine varieties. Zagarach is a wonderful natural amphitheater that overlooks Podgorica. The local climate provides ideal conditions for growing red grapevine varieties. Grapevine planting density is 5,000 plants per hectare.

Witnesses of a New Era

It is difficult to imagine, but the winemaking tradition in this region dates back to the 3rd century B.C. This is evidenced by amphorae and jugs found during various archaeological excavations. For centuries, viticulture was pretty well developed there and played a significant role in the life of the population. However, during the numerous wars in the period from 15th to 19th century, and especially the Turkish invasion, growing grapevines and wine production has been significantly reduced and completely abandoned in some areas. Only in the 19th – 20th centuries, this branch of agriculture got a chance to revive and bloom.

Today, the cultivated soil and the Lipovac vineyards are the best witnesses of a new era.
