My knowledge of Macedonian wine before this week was extremely limited. I remember having a glass during an event last year that was surprisingly solid but after this showcase I can truly say this is an exciting new region.
Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer guided us through lunch with twelve wines from four different wineries paired with four courses from the 21 Club.
To begin an Antipasto with Marinated Feta, Smoked Sujuk, Roasted Pepper & Olives with three whites including one of my favorites of the afternoon Zilavaka; a dry, nutty white with hints of peach and honey that would be perfect for just about any occasion.
