Description to Serbia

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

In Central Serbia (Centralna Srbija) there were hardly any wars, so unlike other former Yugoslav states, the vineyards remained largely intact. These are mainly due to the rivers Danube, Morava and Timok. The six wine-growing areas are called Nisava-Juzna Morava, Pocerina-Podgora, Sumadija-Podgora, Timok, by far the largest area Sumadija-Velika Morava and Zapadna Morava. The oldest vineyard is Zupa, from where the well-known red wine Zupsko Crno and the Rosé Zupska Ruzica comes from.

In the north on the border too Croatia. Romania and Hungary is the province of Vojvodina (Woiwodina), which is divided into the four wine-growing areas Banat, Pescara, Srem and Subotica. In 2012, the vineyard area was 44,000 hectares, of which 2.175 million hectoliters of wine were produced (see also under Wine production volumes ). There are still many autochthonous Vines, but the international varieties are constantly increasing. The Blend 2010 (Kym Anderson ):
