What else ? This is the oldest Serbian wine brand, with the same name have being sold since eight decades of the twentieth century. It was always meant as a bulk, folk-wine, and today it is the same. The catch is in something else, this wine had the first full color wine-label here ,and it was just a miracle 50 years ago. This, and well chosen name** has made this wine very popular for years. Today, with its new label, also sold very well, mostly because of its price and because of its sweet-strong acid taste go well with Serbian fat, spice food.
