The Belgrade Wine Region includes the southern hinterland of the Sava and Danube rivers, from the estuary of the Kolubara River into Sava to the estuary of Velika Morava into Danube, and the terrains on the slopes of the Avala and Kosmaj mountains. It includes terrains in Obrenovac, Čukarica, Savski Venac, Stari Grad, Vračar, Zvezdara, Palilula, Barajevo, Sopot, Mladenovac, Lazarevac and Smederevo. This region occupies an area of 241,866.90 ha. In the north, the region's boundaries start from the estuary of the Kolubara River into Sava and follow along the right coast of Sava, all the way to its estuary into Danube River. Then the border goes down to the right bank of Danube to the estuary of Velika Morava into Danube. From the estuary, the border is heading further to the south along the Left Coast of Velika Morava, all the way to the border of Municipality of Smederevo and Velika Plana (borderline cadastral area of Saraoci). The border then goes westwards along the border of these municipalities and Smederevska Palanka, then Mladenovac and Topola, Mladenovac and Arandjelovac, and then along the borders of the municipalities of Sopot and Aranđelovac, Lazarevac - Arandjelovac, Lazarevac - Ljig And then towards the north, along the borders of Municipality of Lazarevac - Lajkovac, Lazarevac - Ub, Obrenovac - Ub up to River Kolubara and further downstream of Kolubara to the estuary of the Kolubara River into Sava, which is the start point of the region.



The predominant soil type of this region is eutric cambisol, but fluvisol, humofluvisol, semigley, luvisol and land in loessification, pseudogley, chernozem and other types of soil are also present. The altitude of most of the region is 100 to 300 m.a.s.l., but the areas of vineyards are mostly located at 150 to 250 m.a.s.l. The elevation of the region is gradually reduced from the central part of the region towards the perimeter of the region, with the exception in the southwestern part of the region, which also has higher altitude.

Grape Producers

According to the 2012 Agricultural Census, Belgrade Wine Region has 1129,55 ha of vineyards (about 1061.67 ha of fruit-bearing vineyards, or 93.99%), i.e. 703.29h of table varieties and 426.26 ha of wine varieties.

Influence of large water surfaces

In this region, there is a great impact of Danube River, which is located in the northern side of the region and the Sava River, which flows from the northwest side of the region. They influence the earlier maturation of grapes due to increased diffuse radiation, and during winter, they mitigate the sudden fluctuations of temperature, thus reducing the danger of winter frosts.


This area is characterized by a low-mounted mountain relief with predominantly oak forests, ash tree, alder, willow, poplar tree, etc. in the lower area, and the forests of turkey oak, Hungarian oak, etc. in a higher area. The region also has a large number of slightly smaller water surfaces, Velika Morava at the east side of the region, the river Ralja, flowing through the region, as well as Ljig and Kolubara at the southwestern and west side of the region. Hilly terrain, slopes towards rivers, with fruit groves (especially in the Grocka vineyard area) and field crops.
