Press Reviews

This producer regularly over-delivers. Stobi Winery is one of the most modern wineries in North Macedonia and was established in 2009. It is located near the ruins of the ancient city of Stobi in the Tikveš wine district, has over 600 ha (1,483 acres) of land and produces up to 4.5 million bottles of wine per year. Stobi was a huge co-operative when purchased by the Jordanova family and is part of the upswing in fortunes in North Macedonian wine production. There are more than 280 sunny days in this part of North Macedonia, with a very hot summer and wind that protects the grapes from disease. Their vineyards are 25 to 40 years old depending on the grape variety. Stobi like to champion the indigenous grapes Vranec and Žilavka, Smederevka and the Georgian grape Rkatsiteli.

Exceptionally deep, concentrated purplish crimson. Intense, rather noble and a fine combination of freshness and fine tannin. This gives the impression that it will last quite a long time. Elderberry fruit. This concentrated wine has a beginning, middle and end and is wonderfully southern European with its obviously thick-skinned grapes from a dry climate. No hurry at all to drink this! Indeed I think it's a food wine – especially when the wine is young. I suspect this will be at its best 2022–2024 or even longer. VGV. 16.5/20
