The Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina in south-east Europe with the capital Sarajevo covers 51,197 km². Geographically, it consists of the region of Bosnia in the north (80% of the national territory) and the smaller region of Herzegovina in the south. The country borders Croatia to the north and west, Serbia to the east and Montenegro to the south-east. The state also has a coastal strip of around 25 kilometres along the Adriatic Sea near Neum in the Neum Corridor. Bosnia-Herzegovina became independent in 1992 as a result of the war and the disintegration of Yugoslavia.

Organised viticulture began under the rule of the Habsburg monarchy of Austria-Hungary towards the end of the 19th century. In 1886, the wine and fruit-growing office was founded in Gnojnice. The wines were very popular at the Viennese court, which is why these vineyards are still called "imperial vineyards" today.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
