Winery Alex is a family company, which is jointly led by the spouses Nenad Ratkovic, better known by his nickname Bermet Aleksa and Ljiljana Bjelogrlic.
History of the Winery
This winery was founded in 1990, but the family legacy in terms of wine production dates back to the 18th century.
Ljiljana’s ancestors cultivated grapes and produced very high quality wines. The vineyards of this family winery spread on Banstol, on the border between Indjija, Irig and Sremski Karlovci, near the monastery Krušedol.
These vineyards were first planted in the thirties. When the Winery Aleks was founded, the production of wine and brandy was raised to a higher level. At first, the wine was produced solely for the needs of the family, however today the 5 acres of vineyards no longer meet the needs of production.
The winery buys grapes in order to keep up with its production demands. The trademark of winery Alex is “Bermet Aleks”. The “Bermet Aleks” stamp is protected in domestic and international markets. Along with the easily recognized brand, the winery owner Nenad Ratkovic is also very distinctive in his appearance, wearing traditional outfits from Srem, which include a black hat and vest, starched white shirt and wide white pants.
In 2008 the Alex Winery received the title of Royal Warrant by the Royal Court Karadjordjevic in Belgrade, which allowed the famous red and white bermet to find its place in the royal dining room. Bermet – the authentic wine of this region was world known going back over 150 years.
According to some data, this wine was even located on the wine list of the most famous ship “Titanic”. Bermet is a special liqueur wine, associated with vermouth, but is produced in a different way. It is flavored with sweet wine and intensified with more than 20 fragrant bitter herbs and spices.
