Despotika Winery owns 20ha of vineyards. The vineyards are located in three locations in two wine-growing regions, which enables the research of the possibilities provided by different terroirs.
Šumadija wine-growing region
At the location in the village of Golobok near Smederevska Palanka, there are about 4 hectares of vineyards. There are international varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon white. The location where the vineyards are located has been under vines for centuries, and the culture and tradition of growing vines in this micro-locality of the Krnjevac vineyards. In the same vineyard there is a winery where there are about 3 hectares of vineyards of domestic indigenous varieties Morava and Prokupac. Prokupac was grown on the traditional cultivation form, while Morava was planted in a trellis-type orchard.
Belgrade wine-growing region
The winery still owns about 5 hectares of vineyards in the Groč vineyards, which belong to the Belgrade region. In this locality, which is about 50 km away from the winery, the international varieties Muscat Otonel, Rhine Riesling, Pino white and Pino black are planted.
On the undulating slopes of the Umcar hills, on an area of 5 hectares, plantations of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Black and White, Rhine Riesling and to a lesser extent Muscat Otonel have been raised. At the location that is also listed in the cadastre as Vineyards, on the south-west facing plots, the locals have been growing vines since ancient times.
Not far from the winery, in the village of Golobok, on a hill called Paučina, about 4 hectares of vineyards, varieties Sauvignon White, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, have been planted. The composition of the soil, the southern exposure, the gentle slope and the pleasant breeze guarantee the top quality of grapes from this location.
The youngest plantations of our vineyards are located right next to the winery. On an area of 2 hectares, on the hill Straževica, there were rows of Prokupac and Morava. As representatives of two autochthonous domestic varieties, one old and one modern, they welcome all visitors to the Despotika winery.
