Wine tasting in Godinje
Through the new tourist offer of the AVE tours agency – AGRO TOURISM, you will get to know a different Montenegro.
In Montenegrin villages, get to know the customs and traditions of the past time that have been transmitted from generation to generation.
We take you to Montenegrin villages!
Villages that are very close in space, but in appearance, content, customs and their offer are many different… What is common for all Montenegrin villages – the hosts greet the guests as they are part of the family, with refreshments and a kind words.
That is a traditional Montenegrin hospitality!
Since the truth is in the wine, the first offer is WINE TASTING IN THE CRMNICA VILLAGE GODINJE.
The village of Godinje is the first protected rural entity in Montenegro with the status of a cultural asset. Whoever goes once, sees, experiences the ambience in the village of Godinje, gladly returns.
You will rarely find such a small village with such a wide offer – from historical buildings, legends, cultivating customs, excellent wine cellars, sources of drinking water, local food …
All this with a warm welcome from young people who see their future in rural tourism.
Story telling about Godinje
It is most desirable to go to the wine tasting in Godinje in the afternoon. From the Montenegrin coast, we are heading towards Virpazar. (Godinje is about 30 kilometers away from Bar.)
After less than an hour of driving, we take our first photo break at the lookout of the Godinje. From this lookout point, there is a beautiful view of the Skadar Lake National Park. Then go to the old village of Godinje, which has a history of more than 1,000 years.
In the Crmnica village of Godinje, top-quality wine has been produced for generations, from the Vranac variety. Tourists from all over the world, who come from early spring to late autumn, have already been convinced of this. Our host is Miško Leković. In a nice manner, Miško always waits for the guests at the village “guvno” in Godinje and tells the story of the origin of the village and its contents.

In the heart of the village is the house and wine cellar of Miško Leković. He is the 13th generation of the Leković family from the village of Godinja. His ancestors were born in a house that in recent years is a place where tourists enjoy.
During the tour of the cellar, the host will tell the tourists about the process of production and storage of local wine.
The complete story and offer have the warmth of family relaxation.
White, pink and red wine is tasted in the cellar of Miško Leković.
Miško will have all the answers to your questions, as that is his profession and big passion.
Along with excellent wine, the hosts serve local specialities – prosciutto, cheese, homemade vegetables, various salads, homemade bread and excellent fish soup made from fish from Skadar Lake.
The tasting lasts less than two hours.
After the tasting with Ave tours guide, we visit the unique village with authentic architecture “house to house”, and tourists will see where the summer house of the Balšić dynasty was.
