On the outskirts of the wine-growing village Gojinovac, in the Toplica Valley stands a striking ensemble of buildings amidst the endless vineyards: Toplicki Vinogradi Winery. Here, Miki Kovacevic and Urs Haener have been producing wine since 2011. From the beginning, they knew that the vine is key to a good wine. Thus, in 2007, they begun planting high quality vines on old, previously existing vineyards, revitalizing a tradition almost lost due to the export embargo in former Yugoslavia.
It is vital for the grape to sustain its quality on the journey from vine to bottle, therefore, production was structured accordingly: The flow of the grapes the juice is guided by the forces of gravity. An area of 26 hectares is currently in production and will be dedicated to Prokupac, the autochthonous vine to southern Serbia. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are also grown. A further 40 hectares of Prokupac will be planted within the next 2 years.
Toplicki Vinogradi wines are available directly from the winery Gojinovac, worldwide.
