The municipality of Razanj has taken a lot of care to protect nature and ensure an eco-friendly environment in its community. This has been achieved through organizing and unifying producers, standardizing the quality of local products and helping the formation of local brands in an effort to make a path towards the global market. In addition to promoting progress it has invested into local tourism by promoting local specialties and by helping the formation of a women’s association under the name of “Etno konac” which has through its many projects enabled local women to engage and learn how to produce local products, and even gives incentives to create new gastronomic products. Razanj has even shown great results in international gastronomical competitions like “Cuisines of the world“, along with other events made to showcase authentic and delicious food. Some of the highlights include: bread and pastries made in a crepulja, many dishes made from game, and cold dishes like cevris and bobove pihtije. The municipality is on its way to being certified as a gastro-tourist destination of special significance.
Aleksandar Todorovic winery
Our first vineyard was planted by my father in 1995, the same year that I was born. I grew up within these vineyards. I took my first steps among the rows of grapes, I played here and as the years passed I worked and learned to love winemaking. The wineyard grew with me. For as long as i can remember it has been where I belong. I came to love winemaking so much that i whished to learn more about it. In my pursuit of knowledge I went to The College of Agrarian studies in Zemun, where I majored in fruit cultivation and winemaking. Grape growing and winemaking slowly transformed from a family passion, into a serious life calling. My first harvest was in 2017. It was the sign that my father, Slavisa needed for him to hand me the reigns without fear. Now with my enthusiasm I continue to build on the foundation that he built with his experience, and I remain in the constant pursuit of inovation and advancement of the winemaking field. From the very begining we remained adamant about making the best natural wine – from our own organicaly grown grapes, as we let nature decide which methods are the best.
"A glass of wine and a story" winery
Winery “Glass of Wine and Story” was founded in 2014 in the village of Pretrkovac, Razanj municipality. The winery was named after the entire experience of drinking wine because we believe that one wine requires company, a beautiful atmosphere and that drinking wine is a complex experience to remember. As we believe that each harvest is a story for itself, so we gave our wines, similar to the harvest, the names First Story, Second Story, Third Story… to the 101st Story! One vintage, one story! By choosing the Pannonia variety, Department of Viticulture from Novi Sad, to be the “bearing” grape variety from which we get wine, we experimented with the Prokupac variety through Pro Roze wine 2015, as well as with Merlot, which we nurture in 2016. The 1ha vineyard is located in the Ražanj vineyards and is part of the Three Moravas region.
From March 2017, the winery has the capacity to visit up to 30 tourists, a conference hall and a tasting room – the right place to enjoy
Agricultural holding STAMBOLIC
They called their small brand “Taština kuhinja“, (Vanity’s kitchen) not without reason.
– The name “Taština kuhinja” is not accidental, since mother-in-law Slavica is the main one in the processing of jams, sweets and winter vegetables.
However, as it should be, our host is the main one for the production of brandy and quince. They say that there is no better brandy in Serbia than Stambolic’s, and whoever tries the magic from “Vanity of the Kitchen” becomes their fan forever, be it ajvar, lutenica, tomato juice, callus syrup, plum jam, strawberry jam, blackberry wine… The wall in the family house full of diplomas and awards speaks in favor of quality. Whoever tried it says that the products are top quality, as evidenced by countless comments on Dejan’s Facebook page.
What is the essence of a good quince? Full maturity of the fruit and obligatory removal of the seed bed. Many do not, but it also affects the aroma.
