Tikves Cuvee Cyril, Macedonia


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: 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.

Tikves Cuvee Cyril, Macedonia.  A blend of Smederevka (pronounced Smed-er-EV-car); Rekaciteli (pronounced Rekachee-TEL-ly) and Chardonnay – the former two are indigenous varieties to the Republic of Macedonia. Smederevka is the leading grape variety for white wines in the region and Rekaciteli is an ancient variety which produces crisp wines with floral notes.
