Story
Tagline
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 :-)

Explain This: Total U.S. Wine Consumption Down, Fine-Wine Consumption Up!
Flat economy and fine-wine costs on the rise? We’ll counter by buying less wine overall, just more of the high-priced variety.

Vegetables fried with ‪#‎oliveoil‬ have more healthy properties than boiled ones: research
 
Vegetables fried with ‪#‎oliveoil‬ have more healthy properties than boiled ones: research! ‪#‎science‬ ‪#‎health‬ 
Researchers from the University of Granada (UGR) have proven that frying in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) increases the phenolic fraction present in raw vegetables typical in the Mediterranean diet (potato, pumpkin, tomato and eggplant). This means an improvement to these foods in the cooking process.
