Dalvina dooel and its vineyards are located in the Strumeshnica valley, in the Strumica-Radovish wine region of south-eastern Macedonia. Surrounded by towering mountains with an average altitude of 280m, the company’s vineyards are enveloped by a local Mediterranean climate marked by cool breezes throughout the summer nights. With about 210 sunny days per year, an average 20.2°C during the vegetative period, little rain, and relatively low humidity – healthy, aromatic grapes are a striking characteristic of the region.

Dalvina is a young and prospering winery surrounded by 410 hectares of vineyards, a yearly production capacity of 34.000Hl and a storage capacity of 70.000Hl. The company controls the entire process, beginning with the collection of the grapes, applying the gentlest state-of-the-art technologies at every step including grape pressing, fermentation, bottling and continues the careful product handling even with transport. Aiming to create a high standard product, the company’s team ferries a passion to capture the unique properties of the grapes, the soil and microclimates of the area – and forge them into liquid art.

Dalvina wines are mostly sold on the domestic market but also exported to Croatia, China, USA and Switzerland.

To increase its capacity, the company invested in vertical stainless steel storage tanks of 1000 Hl each, increasing the total production capacity by 800,000 litres per year.

The new tanks are in compliance with the EU Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 October 2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food and repealing Directives 80/590/EEC and 89/109/EEC. Meeting the requirements of this regulation enhances the company’s export opportunities to European markets.

The company used the simple LET process, which is a fast-rack access to financing investments by picking pre-approved equipment from a list of eligible technologies. After the successful verification of its investment project, the company received a15% grant cash-back, funded by the European Union.
