Čačak-Kraljevo wine region includes Čačak valley (on both sides of the West Morava river) and smaller sites in the Ibar River Valley.

Čačak-Kraljevo wine region consists of two sub-regions: Ljubić and Jelica. This region also contains three vinegrowing oases: Šarani, Žiča and Raška / Kaznovići.

According to 2012 data, there are 65 hectares of vineyards in Čačak-Kraljevo wine region.

Soil: The predominant soil types in the region are Vertisol and Stagnosol (Pseudogley), and to a lesser extent Fluvisol, Cambisol and other types of soil.

Vineyards are generally located at altitudes of 250 to 350 meters. The altitude is gradually decreasing as it moves from the perimeter of the wine region towards the center, that is, the interior of the area.
