Winery Popovic, Trn The most famous wine-grower from Laktaši, Mr. Bogoljub Popović, with the blessing of the priest Slobodan Vrhovac, started cutting in his vineyard. He has always stuck to the rule – measure three times, and then carefully cut! He is considered to be a doyen among wine-growers in the region of Laktaši. This 70-year-old man has spent decades in vineyards. Therefore, when conversation starts, a story has no end. It is not unusual because Popović family have been raising grapes for over 200 years. However, it is interesting that during past ten years Bogoljub Popović has been raising grapes in Trn, near Laktaši, where he was sent away from Croatia, in an action "Storm" (Oluja), just before grape harvest in his vineyard, in Čista Mala, near Šibenik in Croatia.
" No one has ever raised grapes or produced wine here. People kept talking I was insane trying to set up Dalmatian vineyard in lowlands in Trn. However, my "rkaciteli", "moldavia", "rajnski reisling", "shardone" and "game" have given 4.000 l of wine for several years. Even my great-grandfather couldn't imagine his life without vineyards and grapes. I often say that if I hadn't been born in a vineyard, then I had certainly been grown up there." – said Mr. Popović.
