Evening Standard: The small country of Macedonia with great vineyards

When it comes to Macedonia you may think about Lake Ohrid as UNESCO site but the British Media “Evening Standard” promote lately in article the viniculture of Macedonia.

Macedonia may be small (just shy of 10,000 square miles) but its vineyards pack a punch. In wine region Tikves, 50 miles south of the capital, Skopje, Stobi offers a range of tours, making it a good bet for the time-pushed. Visits end with a tasting paired with traditional Macedonian cuisine.

Tikves is more touristy, with its firelit tasting room for sipping gutsy, award-winning prokupac and vranec. The relaxed tour takes you past barrels containing the award-winning Alexandria Cuvée adored by locals, and Domaine Lepovo pinot noir.
