Discovering the wine region of Metohija

Kosovo is a region of south-eastern Europe, once an autonomous province within the former Yugoslavia. Until the outbreak of civil war, Kosovo had a substantial area of productive vineyards. Many were then abandoned, and the industry is still in the early stages of recovery. This is a disputed land, claimed as sovereign territory by Serbia but seen as independent by the ethnic Albanian majority who live there.

Kosovo was governed by the United Nations until 2008, when the government of Kosovo was formed. The effect of the conflict on the wine industry was amplified because Kosovo's pre-war exports were heavily focused on a single wine brand aimed at a single export market. Amselfelder ('blackbird fields'), a Sweet red wine made from Pinot Noir and Gamay, was a massive success in Germany. The Kosovan wine market was disproportionately dependent upon it.

Millions of cases of Amselfelder were shipped to Germany each year, and the brand was at its peak when war broke out. The logistics of wine production and export are nearly impossible in wartime, so for almost a decade those vineyards which remained undamaged were largely abandoned; the brand disappeared entirely. Its place in the German wine market was taken by several similarly styled wines from other regions. Amselkeller, a red from Valencia in Spain, was the most successful rival, appearing just 18 months after the start of the Kosovan war.

Discover the grape variety: Saint-Pierre doré

Belonging to the Estaing wines, the Saint Pierre doré is also called Roussellou. With an average budding, this variety is presented in the form of full, winged, elongated and very large bunches, with pulpy, spherical and medium-sized berries. When ripe, the fruit is golden-white in colour, with bronze leaves, which may be three-lobed or whole. The red colour is also found on the internodes of its herbaceous branch. For best results, a fairly long pruning will suit the Saint Pierre Doré, which is not overly afraid of oidium or mildew, but more afraid of grey rot. The characteristics of the roussellou mean that it could play a major role in the production of sparkling wines. The vine does indeed give a very acidic taste, not very sweet and with low degree aromas. It has been noted that the extent of the vineyard recorded in 1958 is 123 Ha, to be reduced to 1 Ha in 1994 on the French territory.
