Lazar Ristov is the best winemaker you haven't heard of - yet! Hidden away in North Macedonia, a country steeped in rich winemaking history, Lazars small winery is producing some truly exceptional wines.

Making the “grandfathers” white wine was a challenge for Lazar to bring back the traditional white wine consumed in Tikves region since ever known as “kominjarnik”. The traditional wine has very long maceration on the skins, for several months, consumed daily from the tap, all over winter, sip by sip by the end of March.

Lazar Winery Orange Wine has been produced by indigenous grapes Smederevka with fermentation of the grapes for more than 45 days on a air open tanks and additional 5 month on the skin contact. Late harvested, perfectly healthy grapes and the thick skinned grapes Smederevka gives the wines rich extract, lively freshness and complex aromas.
