“This is Montenegro. The Land of Wine!”
For centuries, wine has been an essential part of Montenegrin religion, culture and customs. Vineyards around Skadar Lake have been famous since the Roman period, and stories and legends about the grapes and wine from Crmnica originated a very long time ago. Montenegro is the birthplace of Vranac, black like the black horse of the same name – the metaphor of a strong, noble wine.
Cheese is a ubiquitous part of Montenegrin meal. It is white cheese made from unpasteurized cow and goat milk. The characteristic flavour comes from the maturation process that takes place in special wooden barrel-like containers. The cheese matures for at least three weeks until it achieves its characteristic strong flavour and creamy texture. Currently, there is an ongoing procedure for protection of geographic origin for this cheese.
Njeguška pršuta (Smoked ham) is meat specialty from the village of Njeguši in the south of Montenegro. It is a dry-cured ham, served uncooked, similar to Italian Prosciutto. The specific flavour and aroma come from the use of sea salt and the curing on the mixture and mountain and sea air and beech wood smoke.
