Story

Wines of Balkans: www.winesofbalkans.com
Introduction

I am a Founder and Social Media Manager at winesofbalkans.com exploring wines from 12 South-Eastern European countries & people shaping these wines; namely from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Greece & Turkey!

New or Old World wines; Prokupac, Tamjanika or 'Trijumf' from Serbia; an excellent Dalmatian red 'Dingač' or good Bordeaux, Burgundy or Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinotage, Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon from Western Cape or truly superb Riesling from the Rhine region of Germany, Austria or Alsace - my passion for great wines seems to be inexhaustible. 

I earned my B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) degree in 1998 & had worked more than 10 years for the UN in Bosnia-Herzegovina & Kosovo (Serbia) as a professional translator. My M.A. (Master of Arts) degree in cultural studies (2008) helped me understand my roots in the Balkans & the essence of cultural diplomacy. 

After relocating to Cape Town in October 2009 I started wine-networking & my studies at the Cape Wine Academy (CWA). Dusan joined wine.co.za in May 2010 as a Social Media Manager. I am passionate about wine & Social Media & am using innovative technology solutions & services in order to be successful in applying acquired skills. My goals are to master social media networking, learn subtle intricacies of wine sales & marketing, earn Cape Wine Academy Diploma in Wine & discover various features of that fascinating topic of wine.

After two exciting years in Cape Town working within South African wine industry, I returned to Belgrade, Serbia, on September 2, 2011 in order to passionately enter & decipher the Balkan's world of wine. The rest is history :-)

#Prosecco overtaking #champagne as sparkling wine of choice! 
"As much as I love champagne, the most famous sparkling wine of the world, prosecco is overtaking it by volume."

Gulping rather than sipping, storing red in the FRIDGE and pronouncing the 't' in Merlot: Biggest Brit wine drinking faux pas revealed! #wine #education  
A survey of 2,000 UK adults by the International Wine Challenge has revealed that almost half of Brits commit regular wine faux pas, with gulping wine and chilling red amongst them.

I agree with that part. The environment is essential. If I have to drink a good red now (summer time in Europe), I use my aircon and a 'room temperature' is 15 degrees below the outside temp. :D Cheers!

Oscar curse is a superstition that the woman who wins the Academy Award for Best Actress will have her boyfriend or husband cheat on her or divorce her soon after! :(
Most celebrity splits come and go, so why does the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner breakup feel so personal?
