The Black Stallion - VRANEC
The Republic of North Macedonia, tucked deep into the hills of Southeastern Europe, is evolving into one of the region's most distinguished wine countries. With the wealth of its sun-filled climate and distinctive terroir, North Macedonia has not only the natural beauty and resources conducive to excellent winemaking, but also a steadily growing roster of wineries and enologists producing award-winning wines from a range of international and, especially, indigenous grape varieties. The Vranec variety is the flag bearer in the country's quest for international recognition. Although widely spread all over the Balkans, it is believed to have found its second home in North Macedonia. The meaning of the word Vranec is a strong, black and powerful stallion. The word Vran also means raven, colored or black, which is why this red wine is also known as black wine in the country.
Caroline Gilby, a Master of Wine who is specialized in South-East Europe wine region, will introduce to visitors a series of North Macedonian wines with a spotlight on the flagship North Macedonian red grape variety, Vranec. The Masterclass will also allow visitors to gain a greater understanding of the history of North Macedonian wine and the progress the industry has made to date.
