Rkaciteli is an ancient grape originating from Georgia. The name means "red stem". It is one of the oldest known grape varietals.

Tikves Rkaciteli is a refreshing white with zingy acidity and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits. This great food wine would pair well with most light seafood dishes as well as Asian cuisines like Thai and Vietnamese

Hand-crafted with passion and patience, Tikveš wines are emblematic of Macedonia’s ancient tradition of winemaking. Located in the heart of Macedonia’s wine country, their wines reflect over 120 years of a culture that celebrates the entire wine experience – from growth, to harvest to fermentation to the most significant part, enjoyment with family and friends. The Tikveš winery is the oldest winery in Macedonia; it began in 1885. Today is the exemplar of a modern and innovative winery. The winery uses sustainable practices throughout its operations including limiting the use of treatment of the vines, reducing consumption of both energy and water, building solar panes for self-sustainable energy and a commitment to recycling waste and turning it into natural fertilizer. Philippe Cambie is an advisor for the property.

Macedonia is a landlocked country that was most recently part of Yugoslavia. It is located directly North of Greece and shares it's proclivity toward vine growing. 80% of the vineyards are planted to red varieties including the indigenous Vranec. White varieties include Smedarevka, Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Zilavka.
