Summary:

Medun 2oo8 - 13 jul Plantaze winery

Dark red  colors, smell blueberry jam, fig .Full body, smooth creamy-fruity taste  like  blueberry, raisins, fig  and little cocoa.

Marko_Miljanov

MEDUN, hilly area with vineyards close by Podgorica,  Montenegro. From one of the hill since ancient times at the top there was a fortress with soldiers (Ilirian, Roman, Byzantine,Ottoman Turkey),
The remains of the destroyed walls of the fortress is displayed on the label.
For today Montenegrin  Medun is significant like spiritual place because there is born,lived and buried Marko Miljanov Popovic Drekalovic , the Duke oh  the Montenegrin tribes Kuci,  warrior, general, judge, statesman and first dissident in modern Montenegrin history.
In exile he learned to read and write at the age of 50, and written a “The Examples of Humanity and Braver” collection of short  Zen stories with examples of humanity and heroism Montenegrin and Albanians, which are still ethical ideal from the people of this countries.
