Description

There is not a single household in the Ohrid region that does not make wine. There seems to be a special particle for winemaking curved into the people here. Like everyone else, we were also making delicious wines at home and sharing them with friends and family. After years of making and tasting, receiving compliments and praises, we decided to share our handmade wines with the world. We founded our small winery in 2019 and since then we’ve been making around 10.000 bottles of wine per year. Our process remains the same, call it primordial if you will, we haven’t changed a thing. We carefully handpick every single grape and give our utmost attention to all the processes that follow. We listen and let the wine tell us what it needs. And every year, every barrel even, has its own twist and story. When we drink and speak about our wines we refer to them as works of art. Every barrel with wine undergoes distinct influences and is altered by different elements so naturally they have different art tendency and style. Some of them are pure red Romanticism, others are as accurately tasty as Realism. While a couple of them are so good they’ll make you feel like you are born a new, and you guessed it they are part of our Renaissance collection. During the wine tasting, the guide will explain the traditional philosophy and criteria behind the making of our vintages. A well explained visit at the monastery of St. Cosmas and Damian is also included in the trip, along with a walk around the winery and cellar. Organized transfer from your accommodation to the winery and back is included in the tour price.
