Stobi vineyards have been home to ancient shrines for many centuries and the cellars used to mature the wine is surrounded by the remnants of the archaeological site which is considered by many to be the most famous in the Republic of Macedonia - the ancient civilisation of Stobi.
Homeland of Alexander the Great, and playing host to both the Roman and Ottoman empires, the ruins of Stobi are located on the road that leads from the Danube to the Aegean Sea, where many Roman artefacts and mosaics can be found. The ancient temples and theatres stand testament to its importance dating back to the 2nd century B.C. where life and wine once flourished.
The peacock used on their labels is taken from the mosaics found amongst the Roman ruins. It is the symbol of immortality and has become a national icon for the Macedonian people.
Stobi Winery offers a select range of white, rose and red wines catering for all tastes, from the classic chardonnay trough to the highly prized stobi vranec veritas. THE VRANEC GRAPE is indiginous to the macedonian wine region.
The Stobi Vranec is a very intense, deep inky purple wine made from the unique local grape Vranec. It has a bouquet of morello cherry overlaid with notes of roast coffee and liquorice. A tasty and characterful wine with crushed blackberry flavours and easy, rounded tannins.
