About

Chateau Sopot Winery is located in the heart of the Veles Wine District and is one of the most picturesque wineries in the country. With a capacity of 80,000 litres it sits in 100 hectares of its own vineyards just off the main road from Skopje to Veles. 

Chateau Sopot is a relatively new winery, established in 2006. During the period 2006 – 2012 the winery achieved an annual production of 60,000 liters. As of 2012, another two partners joined the venture, and nowadays the winery strives to increase the capacity. The yearly annual production is around 50,000 liters, a significant part of the wines are kept in barriques.

The winery’s vineyards sit at 220 metres above sea level and include the following plantings – 20 hectares of Chardonnay, 38 hectares of Rhein Riesling, 2 ha of Temjanika and 25 ha of Cabernet Sauvignon. The Chateau Sopot vineyards are located on hills on the left side of the river Vardar, near the village of Sopot, at an altitude of 220 m above sea level. The location is ideal for production of quality wine grapes due to ideal rain fall, temperatures as well as benevolent winds and aeration. The average age of the plantings is 25-30 years and only the Temjanika vineyards are new plantings of almost 10 years old.

The rest of the needed grapes are purchased from the Tikves Wine District, near the town of Negotino, as well as from vineyards located in the locality Krnjevo, the Kozuf Mountain at an altitude of 550 m above sea level. It is important to mention that the winery controls the quality of the vineyards from where they purchase the grapes
