About Château Kamnik

By Paul Caputo

Chateau Kamnik is one of the most exciting wineries in Macedonia. The winery combines an experimental dynamism with a commitment and aspiration to produce the best wines in the country.

Situated just on the outskirts of Skopje with vineyards overlooking the city, Kamnik is a clear pioneer, leading the way at a time when Macedonia is poised to follow. Yet somehow the brand maintains an elusive presence, standing alone with its own strong personality.

The Kamnik venture began with Ilija Malinkovski’s love of fine wine and a desire to create something authentically Macedonian that could show the world the potential so many here believe in. The almost hobby startup manifested itself in 2004, with the creation of a brand new, state of the art winery complete with surrounding vineyards and a distinctive architectural twist that reinforces the brand.
