On our trip to Macedonia we went to Kartal winery. The wine tour started with a lesson how different types of wines are made and afterwards we had the wine tasting of a great selection of white, rose and red wines. Each wine was accompanied by a story about the origin, history and the occasional anecdote of the wine. Besides the wine we were offered tasteful appetizers that went well with the wines. The guide and his brother were very friendly people and the guide made us feel at home in the cozy room where we were sitting. He really gave us a taste of Macedonian hospitality (and of the great wines of course ;)). The tour was delightful and not expensive. At the end we bought two bottles of wine to take with us and the guide gifted us a third bottle, which we are very grateful for. Thank you for the lovely and personal wine tasting experience and we hope to see you next time when we are in Skopje!

My family and I booked a Day trip from Skopje to Nis , Serbia on our vacation . This was a full day trip with a great driver named Mickey #1 and also a great tour guide who showed us The Skull Tower and the Cegar fortress. I’ve never seen anything like the skull tower and the story behind it and also the entrance into the Cegar Fortress was a nice story , walk and tour . After our walking tour our driver took us to a great restaurant where we had delicious local food and wine . Visiting Serbia was definitely a unique experience and we are glad we did it . Special thanks to our driver Micky who brought us water and fruit for our long trip , Micky made it a special day and drove us safely all day .

Jordan is a very friendly and passionate winemaker, always ready to share a lot of meaningful information about the family wine production and the history of North Macedonia. And the wines... Omg, all the six wines we tasted were absolutely great, but the Chardonnay and the Merlot barrique in particular were just incredible. The food pairing with local delicacies was spot on. Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Skopje.

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! We were treated to a very nice lunch with wine pairings overlooking Chateau Sopot's mountain winery. It gets very busy there on the weekends, so it was nice to have a reserved table and a pre-set, traditional Macedonian menu. Our driver, Robert, was absolutely excellent! Very friendly and shared his knowledge about the region and Macedonia in general. Would definitely recommend!

What food !

A car picks us up right outside the hotel and the driver tells us a lot about his country on the way to Stobi. Quick tour through the winery with info on how to make wine. Then we would try 4 different wines and there were different dishes for all kinds of wine. Fantastic good food and nice layout. Recommend a light breakfast,
