The ancestors of Đorđe Žabić, the owner of Žabić Wine Cellar (Vinski podrum Žabić), lived in Čerević three hundred and fifty years ago. Many were winegrowers and fruit growers, and the knowledge of the grapevine was passed on to the descendants as a family tradition. It is also the testimony that the family house and property are worth as much as the whole world and that the native village is the only place of joy, work and suffering, which is its unavoidable companion.
In addition, the current owner of the winery is strongly motivated by his love for winemaking, so that even hard work in the vineyard, which can be compared to raising a child, is not an obstacle to reach the hedonistic pleasure in the end that is drunk from wine glasses in the Žabić Wine Cellar. And it all starts in the vineyard located in Čerević and from the assortment of grapes that consists of: Italian Riesling, Sila, Slankamenka and Muscat Hamburg.
They offer white wines – Italian Riesling and Sila, red wine Muscat Hamburg, and rosé wine Rose. These are domestic wines that are made from healthy grapes by respecting tradition and up-to-date production process, but without chemical additives.
Wine is always in the leading role here, which is confirmed by the wine cellar that is perfectly arranged, modern space in which several rows of wine tanks are accommodated. The tasting room is in the final phase, but that is not an obstacle for many regular customers to choose the one that is exactly to their taste before buying the wine. The announcement is mandatory for everyone who wants to get to know about and buy Đorđe Žabić’s wines.
Announcement is mandatory for group visits.
