This year’s grape harvest completed

This year’s harvest in the vineyards of the University of Montenegro has been completed with a symbolic event, Grape Harvest Day, organized at the trial farm of the Biotechnical Faculty.


In addition to the staff and students of the Biotechnical Faculty, led by Dean Bozidarka Markovic, deans, vice-deans, and employees from several faculties of the University of Montenegro (UCG) and the Rectorate also took part in this symbolic and traditional event.


“During this event, experts in viticulture and wine technology from the Biotechnical Faculty provided detailed information about the capacity of the vineyard, grape varieties, product range, and the technology of wine and brandy production at the trial farm,” stated a press release issued by the University.

The backbone of 22-hectare vineyard located on the trial farm consists of indigenous varieties used for red wines, Vranac and to a lesser extent Kratosija, cultivated on approximately 18 hectares.

The farm also has the oldest wine cellar in Montenegro, which dates back to 1956.

The cellar boasts all the necessary equipment for grape processing and storing wine and grape brandy. The wine cellar has a capacity of 300 thousand litres. Depending on the climate conditions, between 100 to 180 tons of grapes are processed there annually.
