Tikves was founded in FYR Macedonia in 1885, and its wines were first produced in 1912. As with most of the Macedonian wine industry, they have benefitted from investment and innovation subsequent to independence from Yugoslavia, the current owners having purchased the enterprise in 2003, the original family firm having been nationalised in 1946, although the family remained involved. Tikves is now the largest winery and spirit distiller in FYR Macedonia, following the merging of a number of wine and spirits cooperatives in the 1970s. The wines are made from both local and international varieties by a team that harnesses both local knowledge and international consultants. We are pleased to offer their single vineyard wines that express a sense of place with indigenous varieties.

An intriguing single vineyard (Barovo) wine from the southern slopes of the highlands of the FYR of Macedonia. This full-bodied, black fruit laden wine with hints of oak and an almost Italianesque herbal note can easily deal with anything a summer barbecue would throw at it.
The intrinsic freshness of the local Vranec grape helps balance the alcohol of its blending partner, Tribadeg, which is more universally known as Zinfandel! The grapes are picked early in the morning to preserve this freshness and then transported to the modern winery in the outskirts of the capital Skopje. Tikves are the country’s largest producer of wine and spirits, they lavish a great deal of care on these single vineyard wines that they believe are the best expression of Macedonia’s long viticultural heritage Martin Hudson MW, Wine Buyer
