Radevic Estate is expanding their vineyards by clearing land behind their home for 5,000 more vines. We will be planting Chardonnay and Zižak varietals. Zižak is an indigenous grape dating back to the 3rd century B.C. Zižak was a favorite wine of the fearless Queen Teuta of Illyria who terrorized the Roman Empire.
We chose to bring back this historical variety of grape due to its origin being in the oldest settlement in the Bay of Kotor, Montenegro. (The town of Risin has one of the most beautiful collections of mosaics on the Adriatic coast.) This grape variety, Zižak, has excellent enological characteristics with its perfect balance of sugar and acidity.Back to News
