WINES & SPIRITS
Macedonia is an ancient country with wine making traditions dating back to the ancient times of Philip of Macedon and his son Aleksander the Macedonian, later known as Aleksander the Great. Macedonia is located in the Southern part of Europe just north of the Mediterranean Sea, where the Continental and Mediterranean climates meet. The combination of sun, wind, water and fertile land allows the vines to flourish and the grapes to grow and mature naturally. This combination of factors is found in only a small number of areas in the world, and Macedonia is one of them. Grapes are harvested and sorted by hand at the peak of ripeness, and the wine and spirit making processes begin with a combination of old traditions and modern processes. The end result is wines and spirits that are rich, intense and complex in aromas and flavours that make them memorable.
