The landscape of the independent state of Macedonia is dominated by mountains, valleys, and wonderful lakes in the south of the country. The climate has influences from the Mediterranean, Central European (continental), and the mountains. The present state of the wine industry in Macedonia is still relatively unknown.
Many of the sweeter Macedonian wines disappear into the German market to satisfy that country’s demand for ‘liebliche’ wine. Only a few dry red wines are worth the effort to discover at present but this will probably change soon.
