Every wine tells a story about the synergy between the soil, sun, grapes and the country of its origin.
The Tikveš Winery has been narrating the Republic of Macedonia’s story as a winemaking country since 1885.
However, the Republic of Macedonia remains one of Europe’s last undiscovered wine countries. Because it is a natural paradise of vineyards, mountains, lakes and rivers, with a climate perfectly suited to producing quality grapes.
Located in the Tikveš region of central Macedonia, the Tikveš estate sustainably cultivates indigenous varieties such as Smederevka, Vranec and Kratoshija.
The grapes are vinified in the state-of-the-art cellar equipped with the latest technology. Additionally it is under the watchful eye of illustrious consultant oenologist Philippe Cambie, resulting in a series of authentic and characterful wine.
2017 was characterised by having the smallest harvest recorded in the past 70 years.
As a result, the yield was reduced by approximately 50% in the Tikveš wine region because of frost during the spring and at flowering.
However, the grapes harvested were healthy, with an excellent balance between acidity and sugar levels. Hence the resulting wines deliver good varietal characteristics.
Vineyard Vranec (pronounced VRAN-ash) translates as ‘strong, powerful horse’ and wine made from this grape variety is associated with strength and opulence. Additionally Vranec also means black, and is often referred to as the ‘black wine’ locally.
The Tikveš vineyards are sustainably cultivated. Now 80% of the vines planted on the slopes of hillside plots with east or south easterly orientation.
The vines are double Guyot trained and are planted in well drained clay soils. These soils are rich in carbonates and naturally encourage high yields.
