Montenegro's Emerging Wine Scene: A Journey Through Vineyards and Tradition

Montenegro's Emerging Wine Scene: A Journey Through Vineyards and Tradition


With a winemaking tradition that dates back centuries, the Balkan country of Montenegro is beginning to capture the attention of wine aficionados globally. Montenegro's unique climate, diverse terrain, and commitment to tradition and quality are crafting a wine scene that's ripe for exploration. This piece delves into the heart of Montenegro's vineyards, uncovering the rich history, distinctive grape varieties, and the passionate winemakers propelling Montenegro onto the world stage.

A Tradition Rooted in History
Winemaking in Montenegro is a tradition steeped in history, with its roots extending back to the times when the Roman Empire cherished the region's wines. The country's varied microclimates and soils contribute to the production of a wide range of wine styles, from crisp, aromatic whites to robust, complex reds. Montenegro's commitment to viticulture is evident in its preservation of indigenous grape varieties, which add to the unique character and appeal of its wines.

Indigenous Grape Varieties: Vranac and Krstač
At the heart of Montenegro's wine identity are its indigenous grape varieties, Vranac and Krstač. Vranac, meaning "black stallion," is a testament to the strength and boldness of Montenegro's red wines. Known for its deep color, high tannins, and potential for aging, Vranac produces wines with flavors of dark fruits, chocolate, and spice. Krstač, on the other hand, is a white grape variety that yields fresh and aromatic wines, often with floral and citrus notes, showcasing the versatility of Montenegrin viticulture.

The Wine Regions: From Lake Skadar to the Adriatic Coast
Montenegro's wine regions offer a mosaic of terroirs, each contributing its unique signature to the wines produced. The region around Lake Skadar, with its Mediterranean climate, is renowned for its Vranac vineyards, benefiting from the lake's moderating influence. The coastal region, cooled by Adriatic breezes, is ideal for lighter, more aromatic varietals, including Krstač. The north, with its cooler, more continental climate, is exploring with international varieties, adding another layer to Montenegro's wine portfolio.

Wineries Leading the Charge
A new generation of Montenegrin winemakers is embracing both tradition and innovation, with a focus on quality and sustainability. Wineries such as Plantaze, one of the largest in the region, are leading the way in modernizing Montenegrin wine production while preserving the character of indigenous varietals. Smaller, boutique wineries are also making their mark, experimenting with organic practices and innovative techniques to express the unique terroir of their vineyards.

The Future of Montenegro's Wine Scene
Montenegro's wine scene is on the brink of international recognition, with its wines beginning to appear in markets and competitions around the world. The country's winemakers are committed to showcasing the potential of their indigenous grapes, aiming to place Montenegro firmly on the map as a destination for wine lovers seeking new experiences and flavors.

  • At the beginning of April 2022, our family living in Prague bought a house in Sutomore with the assistance of your company.
    Let me express my gratitude to the management of your company for the service provided, and especially to your employees - Anastasia Zeyak, Alexei Grachev and Elena Bozhovich for their attention, patience and even care for the whole time of buying real estate and the services provided after the purchase.
    I would really like all companies to work with the same quality of service. After coming into contact with this kind of attitude towards the client, all our environment, if necessary, will refer to your company only.
    With gratitude on behalf of our family.

  • Based on my experience with CMM in Budva, Montenegro, I can say that they are reliable, fast, and they deliver what they promise. They take really good care of their clients. For instance, I was offered a lift from the airport, and they would take me back and forth from Tivat to Budva and Becici to see various properties. They would answer all of my questions and respond promptly. They have an excellent team: Katarina, Alexander, Natasha, Martin and some other guys whose names I don’t remember. Katarina, my wonderful agent, went to every length to help me find a perfect home. Unfortunately, my situation changed and I had to postpone my relocation to Montenegro.
    I would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a property in Montenegro.

  • We were introduced to CMM by friends who had already done research on Montenegro and CMM. We purchased our apartment in Dobrota, just outside Kotor, all remotely from South Africa, during the lockdown. Everything was seamless without any problems at all. All the CMM departments work together well from the sales team, head office, legal, interior design and rental department. Every detail was well communicated with an abundance of zoom meetings, videos, emails etc
    We are thrilled with the outcome and enjoyed working with the CMM team. They were incredibly professional.
    After sales service is also excellent as we move into the rental phase of the apartment and over all management of the apartment including maintenance.
    We have been directly and indirectly involved with many houses/apartments all over the world and this was the up there with the best service we have received.
    Thanks to everyone we dealt with at CMM it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you all. We look forward too many happy years working with you on our rental.

  • Last year we decided to find a new home close to the sea. It was quite difficult in the beginning to make the right choice. Once we found CMM Company was a great luck! We immediately received detailed consultation on the country and purchase opportunities. Being attracted by Kotor - one of the most amazing parts of the coast, we decided to take a family trip and maybe make our dream of new home come true. As just discoverers of Montenegro, we were accepted like at home which was a one more pleasant surprise. The most important, we received all detailed information about country regions and procedure of buying property during the first few days. And how beautiful the car journeys were! Difficult choice, but when you find the home you want you can't refuse it. CMM did best to help us with this finding! All the purchase procedure passed well with CMM professional work! Now we are happy owners of a wonderful house with a Kotor bay view, being perfectly served by CMM Management company (of course, we've chosen CMM as professional house manager). Hope our friends and relatives would also move to Montenegro with the CMM help soon !!!
