Tikveš at the Heart of Macedonia

Tikveš is the most well known wine region in Macedonia. It is located in the very heart of the country and stretches along similar latitudes as Bordeaux, Tuscany and the Napa Valley in California. It's no wonder this region produces such high quality tasting wines.

Tikveš Wine Making Region

With nearly 12,000 hectares of vines, the Tikveš wine region represents around one third of the all grapes grown in Macedonia. The summers are long and hot and the winters mild and rainy with an average annual rainfall of 460 mm.

The vineyards are located at an average of 300 metres above sea level, protected by mountains and highlands on three sides, channeling the gentle north winds and Mediterranean climates, creating ideal grape growing conditions.
