Well-known brand wine from Kosovo, developed and distributed by the German company Racke. The medium sweet red wine cuvée was or is blended from the varieties Gamay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Vranac and Prokupac. In the meantime, however, there are also white and rosé wines under this name. The name recalls the memorable, historic battle of the Serbs against the Turks in June 1389 on the Blackbird Field that gave the wine its name. The Serbs and their allies under Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović (1329-1389) were defeated by the Turkish army under their commander, Sultan Murad I (1319 or 1326-1389). (1319 or 1326-1389) was defeated. Both leaders of these peoples did not survive this battle. The Turkish Murad was killed by a Serbian soldier who had entered the Ottoman camp. The Serbian Lazar was captured and executed. However, the cultivation area of the Amselfeld is in the western part of Kosovo, in the region of Metohija, and not in the eastern part formed by the Amselfeld.
