Vision and Mission Statement
The TIKVEŠ Winery aims to be a company that values its associates and consumers as well as being a leader in the quality wine market matching consumer taste with wines for every occasion.
The cornerstone of the company’s business policy is the creation of strategic and partnership relations with grape producers and consumers, which will result in a reciprocal feeling of commitment and loyalty to the TIKVEŠ Winery and its products. In reality this objective can only be achieved through an awareness of the TIKVEŠ Winery creating something of value for both target groups.
Since time immemorial, on this Macedonian soil, under this sun and sky, people have been making good wine, the wine that arouses the imagination and fulfills people's dreams. The Tikveš region is a place where people live from wine and for wine, where people love and make wine... It is a region with undulating vineyards, wineries and whole villages dedicated to wine, people whose days and nights are devoted to one thing only: to growing, cherishing, keeping and enjoying wine.
