I've been back in Macedonia this week presenting a range of Italian wines to the hospitality sector in Skopje. The event formed part of a trade delegation organised by the Italian Chamber of Commerce.

The Museum of National Revolutionary Struggle made for an excellent venue as winemakers from across Italy brought their wines to Macedonia. I flew in to offer an introduction and masterclass to varieties such as Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and Primitivo, as well as little known grapes such as Albarossa.

Needless to say I took the opportunity to visit Chateau Kamnik while I was there and taste the latest vintage.
