Although the tradition of viticulture in the vineyard of Smederevo is more than five centuries old, the wine of Smederevka is mentioned only in the 19th century. At the end of that century, merchants from European countries came to Smederevo to buy grapes and wine, which they then sold in Switzerland, Austria, France, and other countries.
