Our mission is to create an opportunity for all wine lovers anywhere in the world, to be able to enrich any social occasion with the inimitable experience of Tikveš wines and share our passion for life.
We have a penchant go beyond expectations, to embrace innovation and conquer new markets.
In 2003 we undertook a transformation in our professional life. I was determined to pursue continuous improvement. From that moment to the present, I have been devoted to the idea that the colours of this country, its people, its landscape, music and aromas, should all be reflected and communicated in our Macedonian product. All that our painters and musicians have strived to capture in their art, we at Tikveš have attempted to capture in our wines.
In our wines you can feel the mystery of the fogginess and the morning dew in the Barovo valley, the surreal silence of Bela Voda (вода, voda. Eng. water) and the sandy slopes and warm breeze in Lepovo.
If we managed to capture these qualities and if you can truly feel them, it means that we have succeeded in delivering to you, as wine lovers, our dream and vision for Tikveš and our wines.

SALES OF BOTTLES ANNUALLY
Tikveš wines grow on sun drenched vineyards, nurtured with lots of love and made and bottled by top experts in the wine industry worldwide. The awards that our wines get are the ultimate proof of our dedication to the highest quality.
… We pick every grape on our vineyards by hand. Grape by grape.
The premium quality of the wines and the awards and prizes from the most prestigious wine competitions and authorities in the world are paving the way for “Tikveš” to the very elite of the world wine industry.
Behind each of these successes stand our continuous investments in knowledge and technology, but also our people, passionately committed to the adventure of creating wine.
As the largest, but also one of the most modern wineries in South-Eastern Europe, we have consciously taken a leading role in the wine industry in the region, on the way of worldwide recognition of our wines.
I have found great terroir locations in Macedonia that benefit from the hot summers and cold winters of the continental climate. These locations are of utmost importance in Europe, differing greatly in a very distinguished way from the terroirs in the other important wine-producing countries, such as Italy, France and Spain.
Here we have wines with greater freshness and mineralogy, with more intense aromas that are fruit-forward in character. There is a general trend to plant European wine varieties, but we at Tikveš Winery have embarked on a new course to recreate the Macedonian wine story, through its history.
We explore the old vineyards to discover wines that cannot be created anywhere else in the world.
We don’t want to interfere too much, we pay our respect to the grapevine and its fruit. On the other hand, our winemaking is very precise and is all about purity. We aim to emphasize the terroir and not mask the wine with tannins. We want to show you the gifts of the vineyards and nature itself.
Head winemaker Marko Stojaković is a key figure at our winery. He is rooted in the region, born in Serbia, but raised and educated in France at Bordeaux and Montpellier.
A protégé of Cambie, he arrived at Tikveš Winery when he was just 27 years old, back in 2010, seeing a real opportunity to make a significant difference.
He explains that though this is a big company, it feels like a home and a family, its people being open and progressive.
He manages a team of 12 oenologists who travel regularly to New Zealand, South Africa and Australia to learn more, which represents an unusually open attitude in the regional practice.
THE AWARD WINNING TEAM
Our people are our greatest value. They are the starting point of all wine stories and adventures. Behind all the success are those who invest themselves in the winery every day, as well as our associates, involved in all segments of the company’s operations, from the vineyards, through winemaking, to the global market. They all comprise the Team of Tikveš, in which we constantly continue to invest, because we strongly believe that people are the pillars of every success.
The Team of Tikveš Winery is the perfect blend of wisdom and youth, experience and enthusiasm, great knowledge and continuous eagerness for learning, talent and desire for constant improvement…
What connects us and what is common for all people of Tikveš is the belief that the success of Tikveš is also an individual success and something that each of us is particularly proud of.
The winemaking tradition in Macedonia and the Tikveš region is long for centuries. Since the times of the Roman Empire it has been written that Macedonia produces amazingly powerful wines with a scent of the vibrant south, the taste of songs and laughter of the people living in this region.
Countless hardworking and skillful wine-growers from the past and the present have been part of the birth of the long winemaking tradition in our country, especially in the region of Tikveš. The immense emerge and promotion of our fine wines all around the world is the result of the significant contribution of the visionaries at Tikveš Winery.
The supreme wines which are the result of a perfect synergy of our vineyards, the sky, the sun and the best grape varieties from the Tikveš region, alongside with state-of-the-art technology and knowledge of wine-masters, proudly create Tikveš Winery.
Since 1885, it is the symbol of the centuries-long winemaking tradition, the largest and most awarded winery in South Eastern Europe and beyond.
