Extracted from Wikipedia: The history of wine-making in Serbia is more than 1000 years long. Ever since the Serbian state wasfirst established, wine has been a part of Serbian culture and many of Serbia's rulers, especially the Nemanjić dynasty from 11th till the end of 14th century, have encouraged and promoted viticulture. Former Yugoslavia was among the top-ten world wine producing countries.
The eldest authentic grape sorts are considered to be Prokupac and Tamjanika. Prokupac is the sort of red wines and was known even in early Middle Ages, while Tamjanika is a Muscat sort originated from Southern France, known in Serbia for more than 500 years. Beside these sorts, today in Serbia are mostly raised Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Rhine or "Italian" Riesling, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
White wines constitute about 64% of production, and red about 36%
