The History of authentically Serbian winemaking is more than a thousand year old tradition, beginning with the birth of the Serbian state in the 8th and 9th century, and developing markedly during the Nemanjic Dynasty (from the 11th to end of 14th centaury). Serbian rulers took great care and made great efforts to foster the culture of wine making. For example, in the mid 14th century, during the reign of Tsar Dusan  laws were enacted that specifically concerned the governing of wine making, the quality of wine and the trade in wine. Tsar Dusan himself owned large vineyards and a palace wine cellar in the vicinity of city of Prizren, then the capital city of Dusans Empire. In his time from vineyards and wine cellars in the Velika Hoca, a major centre of local wine cultivation at the time, wine was directly transported to the imperial wine cellar in Prizren by a purpose built 25 km ceramic wine pipe line. details +
