Food and drinks
We all know our lovely wines from our sweet homeland, but internationally it is not so known allthough we've got very good wines wich as for the taste certainly can compete with others in the world. We've allready won many awards for our wines. Recently at Mundus Vindi '06 in Germany, Fonko's chardonnay won the gold medal. A silver medal in France for the Muscat 2005 by Vinery Popov and many many others.
It's probably the way we present it or sell it why they are no succes. The winemakers blaim the politicians and the bussinesmen blaim the winemakers, in the meanwhile people are slowly trying to promote our wines with the help of USAID.
4,000 small vine growers with an average holding of 2.3ha dominate the industry. They sell grapes to medium and small size wineries that produce and market wines.
There are about 38 wineries in all of Macedonia, 25 of which export on foreign markets in more than 26 countries around the world.
MD: Lets hope our wines will get international fame soon. Macedonia Daily is allready sipping on some t'ga za jug!
