Serbia

In the 1990s the state of Yugoslavia was greatly reduced by the independence of former federal states due to warlike events. After the separation of four former federal states, the remaining territory was renamed Serbia-Montenegro in 2003. After a referendum in 2006, Montenegro finally became independent and the rest was renamed Serbia. The autonomous province of Kosovo in the south proclaimed itself independent in 2008. The viticultural structure of these countries has changed considerably as a result. In the remaining part of Serbia there are the following wine growing areas today:

In Central Serbia (Centralna Srbija) there were hardly any armed conflicts, which is why the vineyards remained largely intact, unlike in other former Yugoslav states. These are mainly located along the rivers Danube, Morava and Timok. The six wine-growing regions are called Nisava-Juzna Morava, Pocerina-Podgora, Sumadija-Podgora, Timok, as by far the largest area Sumadija-Velika Morava and Zapadna Morava. The oldest vineyard is Zupa, from where the famous red wine Zupsko Crno and the rosé Zupska Ruzica comes from
