ROXANICH @ WINE VISION BY OPEN BALKAN 2023

The second international wine, food, and tourism fair “Wine Vision by Open Balkan” will be held in Belgrade, Serbia, from November 16th to 19th, 2023, under the patronage of the governments of Serbia, North Macedonia, and Albania, and within the “Open Balkan” initiative. Meet the Roxanich Winery @ “Wine Vision by Open Balkan”, at the Belgrade Fair - Hall 4, among the best wine producers in the region and beyond, and experience the exclusive wine selection.

During the Fair, visitors will have the opportunity to visit different thematically defined halls, as well as to learn everything they want about the history and origin of wine, the production process, types of wine, consumption and, of course, to taste and buy some of the most beautiful wines of the Balkan region and the world.


The Roxanich Winery represents a proud heritage of more than two decades of winemaking. Mladen Rožanić continues to produce strictly limited quantities of wines with heritages stretching back hundreds of years, and to evolve with new varieties only just breaking into the global wine scene, producing authentic wines in harmony with nature. The selection of 20 plus strictly organic, biodynamic labels ranges from crisp whites to honeysuckle rosés, to long aged and macerated white, orange and deep, dark and rich reds.


The Roxanich Winery will present selected, long aged rare natural wine labels at the “Wine Vision by Open Balkan”:

The Roxanich Montona is our full-hearted welcome to the worlds of the Malvasia Istriana grape and macerated white wines.


Unlike many of the “fresh style” Malvasia Istriana, Roxanich`s interpretation is more a wine alike, profound and arguably authentic expression of the classic Malvasia Istriana.


The Roxanich Montona is fresh and macerated from a few hours to a few days, subject to vintage, and has no extreme skin contact duration.

An elegant rosé for all seasons, the Roxanich Portorose is made out of the indigenous grape varieties Borgonja Istriana and Teran.


The Roxanich Portorose is an entirely innovative expression of a rosé, giving its best to a distinctive gourmet palate, with an intense bright color illustrating nuances of rosehip, hibiscus and pomegranate. The wine offers intense and structured sips of an elegantly bodied variety of spicy and earthly aromas. One recalls notes of fresh raspberries, cranberries, strawberries with a hint of lavender.

The Roxanich Lara 1/6 is not a wine for conventional minds - it’s a pioneer of long macerated, natural orange wines - made by macerating the grape variety Malvasia Istriana.


The most first, and later the wine, featuring skin contact of up to 6 months in large wooden vats. Following this prolonged maceration, the wine is then reracked in wooden vats for careful ageing, before it reaches an immaculate condition for being bottled in that particular moment.


Our own interpretation of long macerated Malvasia Istriana, named for Mladen’s first daughter, is here to raise awareness for honest and natural winemaking.

Marked by style so characteristic for Istrian wines, the Roxanich Bordo’ is distinguished by its sublime combination of power and elegance.


The word “Bordo’” stands for Merlot. In Venetian lands, “Bordo’” was mentioned in 1855 for the first time, describing a grape varietal arriving to Venice from the French Bordeaux region.


Bottled without filtration after long ageing in large wooden vats, barrels and giaras, the Roxanich Bordo’ doesn’t show its age, baring it very well. Fresh, featuring a balanced body in the palate with extremely fine and defined tannins, the Roxanich Bordo’ leaves the Merlot lover with a long finish characterized by its outstanding fragrant.
