The word «Vranac» on the Montenegrin means «black horse»; this dry red wine is made from a Balkanian grape sort of the same name. With its dark ruby color the Vranac wine has aromas of sweet ripe fruits and berries. After bottling the notes of chocolate and cinnamon are appearing in this great wine.
The white wine Krstač is made from indigenous grape varieties. On the Montenegrin the word «Krstač» refers to the cross - because a bunch of Krstac grapes sort has a cross shape.
