Color golden yellow, crystal clear. The smell is strong, sweet apple and flowers. Medium body . Ticklish on the palate, in the mouth mildly aromatic with noticeable fruit acids,tropical fruit, apple, and some minerals at background. The alcohol balance is good. Medium long finish , with plenty of crunchy acids.
What else ? It belongs to the royal trinity (Ivanovic-Minic-Spasic) of domestic Tamjanika white wines. We have been following this wine for vintage 2008, and I had the opportunity to drink his non-commercial variant, directly from the barrel. The winemaker deliberately does not unify wine style, depending on the year the tastes are different of strong-aromatic-muscat to fresh-mineral-herbal.

Good movie, strong and aromatic. Maybe not as good as expected of such a team of famouse actors, but good .
Color dark ruby with purple ring off the glass edge. Mild smell, cherry and plum.Medium body. In the mouth pleasantly, dark cherry, plum and slightly oak, full fruty taste, almost sweet.Mild tannins.Excellent balance.Long finish , with pleasant fruity acids. Very drinkable.
What else? New unknown winery, snobbish label, so it happens that I skips it (without the guilty conscience ) a few times on the domestic wine events. Then I try it, and turned out that is one of the best Prokupaca wines from vintage 2016. The team gathered in the Yotta winery now have a great responsibility, to repeat this with vintage 2017 and 2018.:)

So, I skiped this movie few times unduly(mostly because of his posters), just like this wine.
Now I have a great recommendation for movi and wine both.
The color is deep red with a a gentle glow on the edge of the glass. Nice smell of ripe blueberries and little oak . Body is full. In the mouth delicious, black berriies, little bit of spices and discreet oak and little smoke at background. Mature, nice tannins, and excellent balance between alcohol and acid. Still rising,although it is written on the label that it is vintage 2013.Long soft finis, very fruity. Domestic wine lovers say that this wine very like to French wines from Bordeaux,which is a great acknowledgment, indeed.
What else ? As far as I know, this winery was raised by two gentlemen whose working in Switzerland, for their personal satisfaction when they come to vacation in Serbia. With some of the circumstances, this red CS-M and Chardonnay were very favorite by the local wine-lovers. The basic problem is that it is very difficult to buy it in Belgrade, because they mostly sell their production localy, or a gift it to their friends. From this year, finally, they have a distributor for the whole country,OURS company, so we hope we will this wine more often

Sword Master 2016 (San shao ye de jian)
A movie for the real acquaintance of “wuxia” movies, multilayer, good for watching and after which a deep impression remains. All the same as this wine.
Color golden yellow with greenish hue. The smell is strong,varietal, fruity and meadow flowers. In the mouth strong and very aromatic, white peach, quince and white mulberry. Noticed fruity acids but good balanced. Medium length finish , strong and aromatic.
What else? The second vintage of this wine that we tried. 2016 was gentle and soft,but also had caracteristic taste of quince and white mulberry what we liked . “Podrum Pevac” winery is primarily a distillery known for its brandies, but judges of this wine they can say something about wine production too.

Legend of the Ancient Sword 2018
The classic story presented in a modern way. And very tasty and aromatic.
Color golden yellow. Mild smell, quince and little honey. In the mouth a wonderful sweet (but not too sweet) fruit , a mix of quince, pear and apple. And all of this is very well integrated with mild fruit acids. Alcohol also is well balanced, it does not feel. The ending is long, slightly sweet, with true muscat taste.
What else? The wine that we drink during the interruptions of wine-fairs when we relax with the coffee. Or sometimes in the end like as “goodbye glass”. It can be an aperitif. It is absolutely appropriate for every role. Because of this,its wine enjoys a huge reputation among Serbian wine lovers who are not very in-love with sweet wines.

Black Tavern (Hei dian) 1972
Movie from the first cycle of SB movies, from the time when films had to have a strong background story . Some critics compared this movie to films of A.Hitchcock , and it’s true.
So, similarity with wine : masterful work, always wellcome, long good finish, memorable .
We have the pleasure to introduce on our pages the lady, artist which gives honor to Dionysius with her unique work on the glass. You can see here different themes, with fireworks of colors or precision filigree works , but always different, always with deep emotion and unique.
Visnja Zikic, about herself : There are two things that made me devote myself to glass painting completely. Firstly, I come from a family who celebrate St Trifun as a family patron and have always worshipped wine. St Trifun was a patron of vine-growers, grapes and wine. Secondly, I studied chemistry at university and I watched the changes of coluor caused by chemical reactions in glass tubes. I found them fascinating. I also think that I inherited some skills from my talented parents. My main aim was to contribute to wine drinking culture so I started painting wine glasses and decanters. If you want to feel the full taste and smell of wine, it is very important that you choose the right shape of the glass. That is crucial. Wine glasses and wine are also a pleasure for all senses. They should be beautiful, worship-provoking and only then the satisfaction is complete. The motives I choose depend on the inspiration and purpose, sometimes on the user’s wish. The paints I use are long-lasting and stable. Glass painting gives me the freedom of artistic expression. Cooperation with people who use my glasses is a great pleasure for me, and I can see that the culture of wine drinking has reached the level which this Dionysian drink deserves.
Color dark ruby red. The smell of sweet blackberry and raspberry jam. Medium body. In the mouth aromatic, strong taste of sweet blak berries and a little black chocolate. Mild tannin, very good balanced. Very drinkable. A medium long finish,aromatic and fresh.
What else ? This wine is very exotic , 100% of the percentage of Black Tamjanika (Muscat Rosa), and declared as “dry red”.
Second, the owners of the winery Stojkic brothers, have their own specific wine stories :), and very rarely come to Belgrade, as far as I know, there is no his wine distributor here, so its hard to get their wines at Belgrade. This is a big pity, because all the red wines are very good and specific.
Color dark red with a little brown shades on the border. Smell of blueberry jam and small oak in the background. Strong body. In the mouth silk black berries, dark chocolate and a little spicy. Round and mature tannins. A perfectly balanced. Beautiful medium long finish. Wine on height of its maturity.
What else ? This is one of the few Serbian wines that we export to Italy (under the name “Darija”, with diferent label,domestic is very “retro”, but its also contributes to the overall impression about this Pino). And it’s not the only interesting thing. Vineyards of this Pinoa are located near of small coal-mine town Lazarevac, a place that is better known for brandy than wine. But in this case, this small hill slope gets one of the best Pino Noar in Serbia, very , very good.

I thought to this masterpiece movie matching with some blend wine to compare the outplaying between Gosha Kutsenko and Anastasiya lanevskaya with outplaying of some two grape varietis, but at the end, wine is great and movie is great, deep impresion from booth,and really deserve each other.
