Photos from Villa Marija Winery

Though the Villa has fallen into a state of disrepair, there is hope for restoring it on the horizon, as UNESCO has expressed interest in assisting the effort.

These huge barrels came from the royal vineyards in Serbia and were made in the early 1930s. Each can hold up to 7000 liters of wine!

There were also plenty of smaller barrels and the aroma of the wine and the oak was strong.

Those photos are amazing!

I'm an expat in South Korea, and I found your blog through Life After Jerusalem, and I find your writing really fascinating. I've traveled extensively, and my boyfriend is an ex-FS brat, so the foreign service life has always interested me. Would you mind if I added you to my blogroll?
