Tour Flow

After #YourSerbiaHost picks you up at your hotel in Belgrade (usual start time 10am) you’ll head for the first wine stop at the village Vlaški Do and winery Despotika. For winemaking standards, this relatively young winery with ambitious plans and enthusiastic owner makes two wines from indigenous Serbian grape varieties. Those are Morava (white) and Prokupac (red). Only a few winemakers in Serbia grow Morava, so you’ll have a unique opportunity to try this white wine sort. Of course we won’t stop only with these two, there are many Despotika’s wines to taste.

From the village Vlaški do we move on to the capital of Šumadija wine region, Topola. On the slopes of Oplenac hill royal family Karađorđević nurtured their vineyards, from which they produced famous Trijumf (Triumph) wine. Royal wine cellars nowadays are state owned and they grow grapes on 11 hectares only. The highlight of King’s Winery is the original king’s wine cellar which is in excellent condition, so you’ll have the opportunity to see how the king made his wine more than 90 years ago. The biggest treasure of the Royal cellar is the old archive where they keep wines from the 1930s. You’ll only get to try modern wines, not those from the 1930s.
NOTE: Renovation of the King’s Winery is expected during the spring/summer 2024 so there might be changes to the availability of this stop.

Following this wine route you’ll reach one of the most prominent Serbian wineries from the 1990s onward. Aleksandrović winery is a modern, yet very traditional establishment which produces only high quality wines. There is an interesting story related to their most famous Trijumf (Triumph) label and how Aleksandrović continued the tradition of making this wine. You’ll hear this one while you are sipping your own Trijumf. Nowadays Aleksandrović produces more than 20 different wines, but they are best known for their Trijumf range, including sparkling wines.

Final stop on the itinerary is in rural area, a winery which is a perfect example of family wine making. Here you’ll have lunch with wine tasting and an opportunity to hear a story from the winemaker personally, who is also a certified sommelier.

After this winery the private wine tour ends and you are taken back to your hotel in Belgrade.

Miljan took 4 of us on a day tour of 4 wineries. Milan’s is a great guide with a great knowledge of wine and everything else Serbia. We definitely recommend him. The wineries are all very different and each added something to the trip. the first winery was relatively new and modern with a lovely terrace overlooking the vineyard to sample the wines. Beware the generous portions! The Morava grape, producing a white wine, was one we had not tried before and is well worth trying. We then headed to the next winery and lunch spot. This was much smaller than the first, with far lower volumes. The lunch here was amazing and never ending. We loved the Black Tamjanika wine, probably our favourite of the entire day. Next stop was the Kings Cellar. The history and cellars here are fascinating but the wines somewhat average. Final stop of the day was the Alexandrovic winery. Another very modern winery set up well for tourism. The sommelier here was great and gave a really good background to the grapes grown, the history etc. The wines here were all excellent. We absolutely loved this trip. There is a little driving involved to get to see all 4 (good to break between the wines to be honest!) but well worth it. We understood that some tours only visit the last 2 wineries. I think if you did this you would miss out so much.

My boyfriend and I went for a one-day wine tasting trip with our guide Andrija in late-november, and we had such a great day! Our private guide could tell a lot of interesting facts about Serbia and the wineries, and was showing us great hospitality. The wines were tasteful, we had a delicious lunch, the carride felt safe, and we enjoyed the Serbian landscapes. Finally, Andrija did a really great job guiding us! Highly recommended from our side! Best, Javier and Anna

For a long time, wife and I wanted to take a wine tour together and this years' birthday was perfect occasion for a surprise wine tour party for my wife. Miljan from Serbian Private Tours managed to organise a tour for 10 of us on a tight schedule. And what a tour it was! We were picked up in front of our apartment by a fancy new minibus, and taken for an educational, inspiring and above all a fun ride for everyone. Tour was themed "in kings' footsteps" and thought us about history of winemaking in central Serbia, showed us different types and flavours of winemaking - from big a successful private winery, small family owned winery all the way to King Aleksandars' winery. Each stop offered completely different experience, with different ambient, history and obviously wines, yet all was connected by the same thread of passion for winemaking and indigenous vines. Cherry on top was the last stop at wine fair in Topola. Miljan was a great host and professional, has offered a lot of interesting information and stories, but has managed to adapt to our unusual group (each stop being a surprise, and generally a small celebration) and felt like a true part of the group. The minivan was also great and Stanko the driver always managed to find the right tune for us to listen to or sing along with and was a cool sidekick the whole ride. As a special curiosity, even though we haven't agreed to this upfront, Miljan was carrying a professional camera with him, and has taken a lot of great pictures of the event - he even went out of his way to create a neat little postcard that we'll print and send to everyone in the group as a souvenir. A great surprise and a great touch! All in all, this is definitely going to be a party and a tour to remember, would definitely recommend.

We had a great time on our wine tour with beautiful wineries and beautiful wine. The tour is exactly as described and because we were traveling during this pandemic, we pretty much had most of these wineries to ourselves. The first stop was Despotika and a perfect start our day. The winery overlooks beautiful vineyards and scenery and we got 4 different types of wines. From here we went to a family house and had a wonderful lunch and also 4 glasses of wine to go with our meal. This is a true Serbian experience as you are in someone's actual house. From there we then went to a museum-like winery that gave us a sampling of wine. This use to be the King's old cellar and still has archives of old wine. A good stop and interesting to learn about. Our last stop was Aleksandrovic Winery which feels like a high-end winery that also overlooks beautiful vineyards. Here we sat until about sunset with delicious wine! We had a great time, and our guide Andrija was great. Also got some photos of our trip which was a nice surprise!! Overall highly recommend.
