Imperator organic wines represent an honest expression of the grape variety, the climate and our return to nature. Our unique way of growing wines, as a combination of organic and biodynamic principles, is a vision for a bright future for generations to come, but also for providing pure pleasure to those who enjoy wine today. Our ethos is that to engage in organic wine production in this way is an investment for the future.
The combination of two loves – two great passions – history and wine, resulted in eight organic and biodynamic wines named after Roman emperors born in our region. The vineyard, with an area of 9ha, is located on the southern slopes of Fruška Gora, where even before the 17th century, Probus planted the first vines outside the territory of today's Italy. Inspired by history, wine and nature, we present you a selection of our white and red wines.
Area: 9 hectares Year of planting: 2009, 2011, 2018, 2019. Altitude: 164-146m/above sae level Varieties: Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Rhine Riesling, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Syrah and indigenous varieties: Prokupac, Sila, Grašac and Vranac.
Each variety is planted in several different clones, while in the young vineyard from 2018, for the first time, we also have resistant clones of international grape varieties, which facilitates organic, i.e. biodynamic growing of grapes. From 2015 to today, we are the only winery in Serbia that has the RS and EU organic certificate for grapes and wine, and from 2021 the prestigious Demeter biodynamic certificate. Managing the vineyard according to the principles of biodynamics is for us the only possible approach in the production of grapes, and later wine. Biodynamics allows us to make the vineyard function as a self-sustaining system with a lot of work based primarily on prevention and a good sense of time in the care and application of natural vine protection.
The winery is (temporarily) located in Rakovac, Manastirska 35, on Fruška Gora. It has a tasting room with a capacity of 50 people.
