During his September trip to Povardarie David was lucky enough to be there through the grape harvest. Winemaking has been a part of Macedonian culture for at least 2,000 years! A trip to Povardarie will give you the opportunity to taste Macedonian types, in addition to wines.
David starts his wine adventure. This David was given the opportunity. Approximately a month, picking grapes’ whole process takes. In Tikves David tries a few wines and an excellent rakia.
Next end of the afternoon is Stobi Winery for a tour of these tanks along with a peak at their process. During his lunch in Stobi five types of wine attempted. In addition, he left such as Moscat with a few of his favorites and a Macedonian wine that was red named Vranec.
In the middle of a harvest, Popova Kula was like both of the wineries. David and the crew woke up to catch the action for themselves. David cut grapes and took a part. Popova Kula is on our list of 10 Places You Should Visit in Macedonia
Popova Kula produces more than 20 wines, a number of which are types such as Zilavka, Stanushina, and Prokupec.
Popova Kula winery’s very best part is that you can remain here in order to get to understand the food, wine, and culture. Guests are invited to observe a standard Macedonian folk dancing and join in if they prefer. Wineries in Macedonia’s Povardarie wine region is a must for any wine-lover in Macedonia.
