JOIN THE SLATE POLITICAL GABFEST 15TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW & WINE TASTING!

THE WINEMAKERS PODCAST SEASON 1 | EPISODE 4 GORAN BJEKOVIC

Athlete | Athletes are known for their drive, strength and focus. Having a family of athletes behind a winery can only result in meticulous execution and a world class slam dunk wine.

Family | A family is what created this winery and that same family managed and oversaw the wine production. Goran, wife Ksenija and three children, Sasha, Aljosa and Nina, created Aleksander wines as a family estate, for now and for the future generations to come.

Risk | How many families do you know who have quit their livelihood and travelled the world in order to support each others athletic and vinous dreams?

As Goran likes to say, "It’s just about the risk taking."
