Roman Heritage, Modern Production

Macedonia has been producing wine since the very early Romans times when its emperors favoured its grapes.

Today Macedonia produces 100 – 150 million litres of wine which accounts for 3-4% of the World’s wine production and is home to the indigenous Vranec grape, the most popular variety for production of premium wines in Macedonia, and offers an exciting array of new indigenous varieties, relatively unknown to the rest of the world.
