Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 9 reviews

the stobi winery was nice and my tour guide & waiter, darko, was phenomenal. he made me feel so comfortable, he spoke great english, was very knowledgable about the wine, and recommended great dishes to pair with it! i was a solo traveler and i assumed i would be joining a larger group, instead i had the tour, the tasting, and lunch alone. it was kind of weird to have such a large group of other tourists at a table next to me but not join them. the transport was very luxurious and the driver was very nice. overall i would definitely recommend this excursion but not for a solo traveler, for a group.

What food !

A car picks us up right outside the hotel and the driver tells us a lot about his country on the way to Stobi. Quick tour through the winery with info on how to make wine. Then we would try 4 different wines and there were different dishes for all kinds of wine. Fantastic good food and nice layout. Recommend a light breakfast,

short info about the winery, good wines / food good sevitor

good but would be fun to visit a winery in the fall so you see a bit of the process but maybe not because it is fully automatic

Excellent tour!

Really good and very proud guide. Excellent food and Wine...
