June 7, 2018 - The Montenegrin Lipovac winery shows respect to the Georgian winemaking history and ages "Vranac", Montenegro's dry red wine, in Georgian kvevri.

"Lipovac" vineyards opened in 2014. They are located between the regions of Riječka and Crmnička nahija in Građani village. The winery is on the mountain slopes, above the Skadar Lake. Montenegro is known for its Vranac in the Balkans, but the "Lipovac" winery develops a comprehensive enology project with a fascinating concept.

In addition to the traditional production and storage technology, in stainless steel tanks, enologists use amphora, as well as the Georgian kvevri amphora. Owners of the Lipovac winery wanted to emphasize the fact that Georgia has been recognized as the place of the oldest known wine production in the world. In respect to the Georgian winemaking history, the degustation hall of the Lipovac winery has been decorated with Pirosmani inspired paintings showing the tradition of the Georgian feast - supra.

The first grape yields have shown great potential. In 2015, "Lipovac" produced the first line of its wines. Idea, Model, and Concept became new Montenegrin wines.

In 2017, Lipovac produced additional amphora and kvevri wines - Gea and Tellus and Harmonia.
