      About this Skopje tour

      In wine, as in historic locales, both age and authenticity play a vital part in popularity. Today, you're in for two real treats. First, be chauffeured to Stobi, established in the 7th century B.C. Once the ancient town of Paionia, it was seized by Macedon and later roped into the Roman province of Macedonia Salutaris. It's now often cited as Macedonia's most famous archaeological site.

      Explore major ruins like the palace of emperor Theodosius I, sanctuaries to gods, and basilicas adorned with sumptuous frescoes of marsh birds and mosaics of peacocks and deer. See the vast Roman amphitheater, still visibly marked with traces of the Goths' barbaric deeds. At this lucrative spot on Via Egnatia, a road that led from the Danube to the Aegean Sea, Stobi traders once plied gold, iron, white and pink marble, and...

      ...Wine! You're ready to sample the country's most well-known region, right in the very heart. Tikves stretches along similar latitudes as Tuscany, Bordeaux, and Napa Valley, bursting with almost 30,000 acres of vines growing more than 20 varieties of grapes. That's about one-third of all the grapes grown in the entire Republic.

      Written records dating to the Roman Empire era say that Macedonia produces powerful wines that evoke the vibrant spirit of its people. At Tikves Winery, you'll wander deep into the hallowed hallways of a consistently award-winning maker that has nurtured this long tradition and symbolized the region's mastery since 1885. Even better, you're invited to taste it for yourself. Our expert rating? This GoBe tour is a truly pleasing pairing.

      A toast to the Tikves terroir

      Tikves Winery considers its selection "the result of a perfect synergy of the earth, the sky, the sun, and the best grapes" from the region. The proof is in the first drop. Sure, they produce Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Merlot. But the stars here are indigenous varieties including Smederevka, Temjanika, Kratosija, and Vranec. You'll try a number of them, so get ready to swirl, sip, and repeat.
