Tikves Cuvee Methidius, Vranec. 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 Methidius, Vranec. Macedonia.  Vranec (pronounced VRAN-ash) translates as ‘strong, powerful horse’ and wine made from this grape variety is associated with strength and opulence. Vranec also means black, and is often referred to as the ‘black wine’ locally
