Introduction of the Purple stamp in Serbia by the Ministry of agriculture tends to encourage domestic wine production, promotion of high-quality wines with geographic origin (Controlled Geographic Origin and Quality), spreading the wine culture in Serbia and to present the importance of consuming domestic wines with geographic origin. Consumers can now easily recognise and choose certain wine, region, country, producer.
With 18 locations in Serbia, Rubin Company has the largest vineyard surface area in Serbia, spreading to over 1.200 hectares of land. During the 1980s, Rubin’s employees had to have grasped the significance of protecting the geographic origin, and today the Company has the largest number of wines with protected geographic origin. Confirmation arrived in the form of Purple plaque for Rubin’s wines.
Purple stamp is a guarantee of wine’s quality and origin. It is a mark for top quality.
By receiving this prize Rubin Company has once more confirmed and justified the trust of its consumers and awarded the efforts of its employees to produce the high-quality wines in Serbia, from the land of Lazar.
