WinEco (Podrum Radenković) – Serbian wines with a tradition

The Župa region around the city of Aleksandrovac in southern Serbia is considered as the best wine producing region in the country, with a tradition of wine growing that goes back to the pre-Roman times. WinEco is one of the producers in the region, better known as Podrum Radenkovic. Podrum means “cellar”, but the word “chateau” could be used too, see for yourself:

Podrum Radenkovic was founded by Milun Radenkovic (1854-1913). His grandson dr Ðorde Radenkovic (1907-1976) studied enology in Bordaux. Upon his return to Serbia, he participated in founding the big Serbian wine companies, Navip and Rubin. He is the creator of the famous Serbian cognac, called “Vinjak”. Today, the cellar is run by the son and grandson of Mr. Ðorde, Milun and Gvozden. Using the advanced modern technology and the traditional knowledge they produce some truely exceptional wines. These are Sauvignon Blanc (barrique), Chardonnay, Rhine Riesling, Ružica (Rose) and Carigrad (barrique):

We highly recommend Carigrad (preferably 2003 and 2004, although it’s already hard to find nowadays), Rhine Riesling and their Sauvignon Blanc. Website (currently in Serbian only): http://www.wineco.co.yu/
