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 :-)

Why French Winemakers Are Seeing The World Through Rosé-Colored Glasses? 
Many vintners in southern France used to make a few bottles of rosé only for themselves. Now demand for the pale, dry wine has skyrocketed, transforming the lives of the region's winemakers.

Extra virgin #oliveoil is the only fat with a well-defined organoleptic profile, as it is not obtained through refining process!
 
Extra virgin #oliveoil is the only fat with a well-defined organoleptic profile, as it is not obtained through refining process! While extra virgin olive oil is best appreciated raw, it is also the most suitable fat for cooking! Why? Because of all the nutritional fats, EVOO is the most resistant to heat treatment, it is richer in antioxidants & contain larger amounts of mono-saturated fats with a low level of unsaturation! Extra virgin, extra good! #EVOO #Oakhurst

#Chardonnay lovers like to work hard, play hard, apparently. Those who love #SauvignonBlanc are total workaholics, and ‘people of extremes’. Intense. Anyone who loves #PinotNoir is super self-assured or a MASSIVE FAKER. #PinotGrigio drinkers are fans of abbreves, and the type of people you love or hate. They also tend to be a little insecure. #CabernetSauvignon drinkers are super fancy, intelligent, and worldly. They can occasionally be a bit pretentious... Oh really!? #wine

10 Eating Rules French Children Know (But Most Americans Don't) #foodie  
How the French eat, age, dress, raise their children and live in general is a real talking point these days. So, as an American mother of three half-French kids, I figured I'd add my two cents to the

This is cool: How to wash your face with ‪#‎oliveoil‬ 
Extra virgin olive oil should be a staple not only in your kitchen, but also in your bathroom. Make this simple cleansing method part of your daily beauty routine.

How Much Do You Tip for a Bottle of Wine? 
Tipping for wine can be a mystery for any business meal. In the end, it all depends on the service.
