The Wines of Stobi

Just outside the town of Gradsko is one of Macedonia’s newest and most successful wineries: Stobi, named in honor of the nearby Roman ruins which we had already visited.


The Ruins of Stobi

A sprawling set of ruins just off the highway near the town of Gradsko, Stobi is the largest archaeological site in Macedonia. Thanks to its strategic location at the confluence of the rivers Crna and Vardar, Stobi was an important city for both the Paeonian Kingdom and the Romans, until being abandoned after a major earthquake in 518 AD.
