The Old Cellar (BODRUMI I VJETËR) was founded in 1950 and was a socially owned company. The main activity of the enterprise is the production of wines and spirits. With the privatization of Bodrum in 2006 it continued the same activity as the new private property under the name Old Cellar which operates within the “BODRUMI I VJETËR” SH.P.K. Rahovec. At the time when this enterprise was privatized, it was out of order and was downright so we managed to rebuild and recover in a short period of time by providing it with contemporary technology for receiving and processing grapes and producing wine and raisins according to contemporary standards. The basin was rebuilt in time for the 2006 harvest and with imported equipment from Germany, Italy and France we produced quality wines. Our producing capacity is 6.500.000 liters per year.
Starting from a pneumatic system for grape crushing and its fermentation in inox tanks, where the cooling and heating system is built during the fermentation, we believe that our equipment and our experience are worthy of top quality wine from excellent grapes in our land. A select amount of our red wines are outdated in optimum conditions in oak 225 liters (Barrique).
The Rahovec vineyard area is part of the southern sub-region of the vineyard region of Kosovo and belongs to the most prominent areas of vineyards and vineyards in Kosovo.
