Abstract : Intensive development of viticulture and winemaking sector is taking place in the last decade in Montenegro. Vineyard areas, the number of wineries and the number of wine types are increasing. In the structure of grape and wine production are still dominant red indigenous Montenegrin varieties, Vranac in composition with Kratošija. Among the producers of grapes and wine dominant position in Montenegro has the company "13. Jul-Plantaže” (94.5% of the total production i.e. quantity of 145.000 hl of all types of wine). This paper presents results of Montenegrin wine quality analyses in the period from 2014. Chemical analyzes were carried out in oenological laboratories of Biotechnical Faculty, as an integral part of the analysis for the market release of wines. Still, dry wines; red, white and rose were analysed. Results of the analysis showed that wine Vranac from all producers has the highest uniformity in chemical composition. The average content of wine Vranac for the reference period is: 14.0 vol % of alcohol, total extract 28.0 g/l, total acidity 5.2 g/l and pH value of 3.50. This chemical composition is a typical composition for Montenegrin wine Vranac in Montenegro. Wine Kratošija from one producer and Cabernet Sauvignon from two producers were analysed. White wines that were analysed were: Krstač, Chardonnay and Sauvignon. Among these wines the difference in the chemical composition of wines was recorded, especially in Chardonnay, and it is concluded that the characteristics of white wines are more dominated by production style of different producers than by the influence of variety. The average chemical composition for white wines analyzed is 13.6 vol% of alcohol, total extract 22.0 g/l, total acidity 5.9 g/l and pH value of 3.29. The characteristics of analyzed rose wines are distinguished by the style of production (alcohol content, extract and total acids) and all of them are characterized by elevated alcohol content
