They produce handmade, 100% organic wines that include Chianti Classico, Chianti Riserva, Chianti Gran Selezione, Torre and their Super Tuscan wine Quinta Essentia.

The Aleksandrović family has been making wine for over a
century. With a deep-rooted connection to the culture, land, and history,
Vinarija Aleksandrović is located just 80 km south of the Serbian capital of Belgrade in the ancient and beautiful region of Oplenac, known for its history of
viticulture, winemaking, and rich, historical heritage.
Vinarija Aleksandrović is currently the leading private vineyard in Serbia and all their wines are exclusively produced from grapes that are grown on their own 75ha of land. Vines are grouped in three locations: Vinca, Jezevac and Bokanja. All three locations are within a few kilometers of the winery and are all characterized by different microclimates and soil types belonging to brown forest soil and vertisol. Their philosophy is based on quality and is deep-rooted in a handcrafted approach.
UNCLE’S wines are made in very small quantities (1 or 2 barriques), all French oak for the white wines, new and old barriques for the red wines. There are two reasons for this. Less new wood influence, and secondly it was practical.
For Andrew Kilian, winemaking is to care and nurture something beautiful which nature has gifted us. Let the wine guide you and accompany you on its amazing journey full of passion, emotion and time. Andrew only intervenes when necessary and goes a lot on his gut feel!
WEINGUT JOHANNINGER was founded in the year 1994 by the Haas and Schufried families. The establishment had been preceded by a longtime friendship between Markus Haas and Dieter Schufried. Since then, they have united their own cultures for wine and indulgence and philosophy of life.
Weingut Johanninger is eco-certified, and all wines are also produced vegan. They do not use chemicals; only organic compost to improve the soil. Appropriate measures in the vineyards help to keep the grapes healthy. The fully ripe grapes are processed with special care during and after harvest. In the consistently cool vaulted cellars, the wines are vinified with the utmost care, almost exclusively dry, and bottled only after a long period of maturation.
The CLOS JANGLI® vineyards are located in the Luxembourg Moselle, an area rich in biodiversity, not far from Remich, at the place called Scheierberg. Ideally facing south-southwest, the vineyard benefits from a clay-limestone soil and a unique subsoil containing gypsum, which gives the future wines a rare character and a good dose of minerality.
But that’s not all – the organic approach complimented with the respect of biodiversity (use of ladybugs and other insects against mosquitoes, use of oats as a remedy for certain diseases, etc.), the manual work – all this contributes to the optimal development of the grapes. Not to mention the special relationship Stéphane has with his vines: “I caress the plants and talk to them.” The result is grapes of a superior quality that still surprises his winegrower friends.
AAGIN - The Spirit of Berlin
AAGIN inspires both the senses and the mind. It is a distilled union of passion, experience, and tradition. Seductively fruity and complex, AAGIN uses carefully selected botanicals, such as the scent of magnificent rose gardens, spicy notes of coriander and cardamom, fresh citrus fruits, and pure Berlin drinking water.
AAGIN founder and winemaker Markus Haas (Weingut Johanninger) discovered the boiler house of the former luxury papermill, Albrecht und Meister, on Aroser Allee in Berlin. This is where his vision of the AAGIN distillery was born, and the place that is now home for producing masterfully hand-crafted gin.
