Overview

Barovo is a village and an emerging subzone within the rapidly developing wine scene in Macedonia. Located in the foothills of the Baba Mountains in southwestern Macedonia at elevations between 500-600 meters, it is famous for producing wines of greater freshness and more delicate tannins with a noticeable Piedmont-like precision and utility at the table. Barovo comes from a 3 hectare parcel of vines that is 2/3 Kratosija (aka Tribidrag, Primitivo, Zinfandel, etc.) and 1/3 Vranec.
