Producer Note
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 North Macedonia’s
story as a winemaking country since 1885. However, the Republic of North Macedonia
remains one of Europe’s last undiscovered wine countries: 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, 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 under the
watchful eye of illustrious consultant oenologist Philippe Cambie, resulting in a series of
authentic and characterful wines.
Vineyard
Smederevka (pronounced Smed-er-EV-car) is an indigenous variety native to the Tikveš
area of the Republic of North Macedonia and is the leading variety for white wines in
the region. The vineyards are sustainably cultivated, with 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 which are rich in carbonates
and naturally encourage high yields. Therefore green harvesting takes place to reduce
the yields and concentrate the flavours in the grapes. The grapes are manually
harvested when they have reached optimal ripeness and maturity and are transported
immediately to the winery to retain freshness.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted, destemmed and pressed via a pneumatic press.
Each variety was vinified separately. The juice was clarified by sedimentation and then
fermented under temperature controlled conditions in stainless steel tanks to retain the
purity of fruit.
