With a King, it Begins…

The Early beginnings

Among other things, the royal estate included a hospital, a church, a kindergarten, as well as the famous villa built for Queen Maria which was named Villa Maria. In 1928 after appointing Milos Leovac from Belgrade as a property manager, the production began. Wine with extraordinary quality was produced in a cellar with a capacity of 500 000 Liters. The wine was fermented in four glass basins designed in Austria and it was kept in wooden barrels with a capacity of 4000 to 6000 liters. The Royal family ensured that their property had the perfect foundation to realize their ambition.

With Commitment, it Continues

Almost a century later, the winery and the property is privately owned, renovated and modified for a very high-quality product. The idea is to combine the charm of the previous century space with the most modern simplicity. Every element, every building, every drop of wine produced in the Royal Winery today represents the history, the geography, the climate, and the essential human touch, a perfect balance between power and finesse, tradition and modernity.

The Story Statement

The journey The Royal family embarked upon back in the previous century doesn’t have a final destination. We are still on the journey today.
