Cooking and wine tasting of Sumadija
The food and wine tasting tour to the Serbia’s Sumadija Wine region is quite a magnet! You’ll have the opportunity to experience the tasty wine and dishes of the western Serbian people. The local experts will show you how to come up with authentic local cuisines using home-grown ingredients. Of course, you’ll love to visit some of the leading wineries and have a taste of the wines they make.

Day 1 - Introduction to the wineries
You’ll have to arrange either for a pick up at your hotel room or at a station to meet #YourSerbiaHost. Then, you’re scheduled to proceed to the eastern direction of Sumadija to visit two wineries. Well, each has a unique way of processing wine. You’ll first come across Radovanovic winery; one of the pioneers in modern winemaking in Serbia. The winery started about thirty years ago and is currently among the top three wine producer in the country. The winery is well known for the superb Cabernet Sauvignon which has secured various international awards. Visiting the winery and at least tasting a few labels is quite adventurous! The second winery is Despotika. Well, this is a younger winery whose ambitious owner aims at making authentic Serbian wines using Morava and Prokupac grapes. Despotika has their wine aging in barrique barrels made from the Serbian oak. You’ll love the taste of various labels of wine they make. Later, we’ll take you to Mala vrbica and Colovic for dinner and some accommodation for the night.

Day 2 - Cooking class
The day is scheduled to start with a sumptuous breakfast. Later, you will be required to get the required ingredients to start the cookery class. You’ll take a walk in the woods to get some forest fruits. Ivan will be our host and guide while his mother the cooking trainer. In the afternoon, we’ll enjoy the dishes for lunch and later have time to relax at the pool at a stone throw or stroll around the area. The place is perfect for nightlife. Hence, taking some time outside to admire the clear sky can be worthwhile.

Day 3 - Wine tasting in the Sumadija wine region capital
Of course, after staying for the nightlife, you’ll have to spend the night at Ivan’s place. The third day starts with us heading to the capital of Sumadija wine region; Topola. To begin with, you’ll land in King’s wine cellar that was set up in 1931 by Yugoslavian king Alexander. However, the winery is now state-owned. The next is Aleksandrovic winery. It’s probably Serbia’s most prominent winery. Finally, you’ll get to the young but promising Arsenijevic winery. All these wineries produce various labels that you’ll love tasting. Later, we’ll join Nemanja, the owner of Arsenijevic winery for lunch at a nearby restaurant and then leave for Belgrade. It will only take us an hour.
