Cultures of Craft

The cultures of the modern world are shaped by thousands of years of creativity. Art and architecture, dance and spirituality, craft and even combat – all are preserved and adapted across the centuries as traditions are passed down the generations. Whether you are tracing the history of Rajasthan’s ancient artisans or mingling with master samurai, each Aman property is woven into the culture of its surroundings, making every stay an opportunity to discover unique practices, beliefs and creative paths.

Cultivation in Montenegro

Vranac (‘black stallion’) is one of the oldest and least-known grape varieties in the world – a distant ancestor of zinfandel and primitivo. Winemaker Goran Radevic is one of the Montenegrin winemakers devoted to preserving this remarkable fruit.

Endemic to the Balkans, Vranac vines have thrived in the shallow soils of Montenegro’s Crmnica Valley, cultivated by passionate boutique winemakers such as Goran Radevic, owner of the Radevic Estate, not far from Aman Sveti Stefan. Since 2005, Goran has been tending his vines, harvesting them organically and transforming their coal-black grapes into powerful, earthy wines of great character and complexity – the reason they were chosen as the signature bottle for Aman’s Adriatic island resort.
