Vera Tamjanika Reserve (2008) – “Fresh, floral notes of honey-suckle…Flavours of dried apricots, nutmeg and almond…Distinct minerality and refreshing acidity.”

Vino Budimir has a long and proud winemaking history, dating back to 1878. Located just outside the town of Aleksandrovac – in the Serbian wine region of Župa, west of the Morava River – Vino Budimir boasts some of the oldest vineyards in the region, offering fine examples of autochthonous sorts such as Prokupac and Tamjanika. Vino Budimir’s Tamjanika Reserve – which is named after Budimir’s wife, Vera (meaning ‘faith’ or ‘belief) – is made from selected grapes, hand picked from the vineyard’s best locations.
