Beverages - Wine in Belgrade
Our Winnie Winesnop reports that Serbian wine making dates to the Roman period around 1100 AD. 170,000 acres produce about 425,000 tons of grapes annually mainly in local wineries. Yugoslavia was one of the top 10 wine producing areas in the world, and at its peak they produced 160 million gallons annually. Since 2000 the quality has gone up as the quantity has gone down.
Very little wine is exported. The varieties include indigenous red wines such as Prokupac that dates to the middle ages and Vranac. Whites are Snederevka, Tamjanika, Krstac and Dinka. Noble grapes are also grown extensively. There are numerous wine festivals throughout the year.
The local firewater is Rakija. Our Larry Lager says the craft beer scene is very popular and the city boasts having 37 breweries. Larry suggests a visit to Prohibicija or Bajloni for a cold one.

Now to March 19, 2018 see Irena Kelecevic: Where's My Space
The work Where Is My Place consists of several composing parts: drawings in space, framed drawings and collages, interventions with old mobiliary transforming the space into a form of a mise-en-scène, and photos. Taking on the role of spatial narrator, more then with the architecture and the life of the building itself, the artist is concerned with the semantic identity of the place, the symbolism of what this place once were and what it is nowadays. Starting from the basic facts related to location, without some broader knowledge on people, identities, spaces, stories, she embarks on the place identity construction using an inverse method.
