“The wine cellar Panajotovic is a family winery founded in 2003. The winery was founded by Dr. Viktor Panajotovic out of love for quality wines, as well as for long-term continuation of a family tradition. Our roots in wine production are dating back to 1927 when one of our ancestors, grandfather Thomas, founded the first family wine cellar near Krusevac, which had reached a leading position in the quality and quantity of wine that is produced per year by the beginning of the World War II.”
Leading Vision is preparing top quality wines from the best grapes that grows in the richest vineyards of Serbia. Cellar Panajotovic produces wines from grape varieties Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Rhine Riesling, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in which every man can find himself or even his favorite wine.
Depending on the year, wine cellar Panajotovic leaves a certain amount of wine out of sale, so in its basement you can find interesting archival wines aged ten years or more.
Today, production is managed by the youngest member of the Panajotovic family, Vladimir, a professional graduate technologist who has applied traditional recipe for making wine from his ancestors and improved it by modern technology and knowledge .
From the time immemorial the rolling hills of Oplenac were used to cultivate vines. A place of origin of the family Aleksandrovi? has deep connections with the ancient past.
During the Roman times that place was called Vincea, while in the Middle Ages it was called Vinica. Today the place is called Vin?a – which is a direct connection and association with the main activity of the local population. In the beginning of the XX century in nearby Vin?a, the Ven?ac Winemaking Cooperative was founded, and then vineyards and cellar of the Serbian and Yugoslav kings Peter I and Alexander I Kara?or?evi?, who spread the glory of wines from Oplenac far and wide, throughout Europe. The Aleksandrovi? family cultivates vines and makes wines for more than a century. From the very beginning they cooperated closely with the royal viticulturists and cellar masters and also were among founders of the Vin?a Winemaking Cooperative.
When the famous royal cellar master Živan Tadi?, who immigrated to Canada after the World War Two, learned that the family Aleksandrovi? was restoring winemaking tradition of Oplenac, he consequently sent to Vin?a the original recipe – a blend composition of Trijumf – the best wine from the royal cellars. Trijumf was enjoyed on various royal courts before the World War Two. Therefore, in our cellar, based on yellow manuscript, we started writing new pages of the long family history of winemaking, relying on our ancestors’ experience, latest scientific advances and modern technology.
A village of Vin?a, at the foot of Oplenac, where Aleksandrovi? Winery is situated, was always known for viticulture and winemaking. Sunny slopes, a rich structure of the soil, favorable winds and mild climate represent a natural gift which is translated to the top quality wines from Aleksandrovi? Winery.
By applying the latest technology, carefully following global trends, scientific advances and the proud tradition of our older generations, Aleksandrovi? winery became the leader among the wine producers within the entire Balkan region.
In addition to wine production Aleksandrovi? Winery is engaged with the wine tourism. More than 15,000 people visit our winery annually, which clearly shows the very high level of services they offer. Their arrived both individually or as a part of the organized group visits.
