This Croatian wine brand benefits from a unique location, anecdotally connected to the Greek god Dionysus and his lush vineyards
We are all aware that people, above all, value moments and stories in which they are able to be completely themselves. The moments we remember most are the ones that touched us the most… In doing so, we create stories which, coming from the most beautiful moments, play on our imagination and turn dreams into reality. How does this story begin, which transcends the boundaries of space and time, myth and legend, love and passion?
Legend has it that the Greek wine god Dionysus, known to the Romans as Bacchus, had the best vineyards and cellars in the Strumica. This cultural, historical wine micro-locality is located in southeastern Macedonia, in the valley of the two rivers Struma and Strumešnica, which is characterized by a Mediterranean climate.
Touch Wine is made from specially selected grapes using ancient methods created to touch your every essence
The valley is surrounded by high mountains with continuous light breeze, plenty of sun (as many as 210 sunny days a year), scanty rain, ideal air temperature during the growing season, low relative humidity and sandy soil are perfect conditions for growing wines or grapes. It is for these reasons that 800 ha of vineyards were planted in this historical wine micro-locality and a winery was built in its center according to the most demanding wine standards in order to meet all the prerequisites for the production of Touch wines.
The quality of wines and grapes is constantly monitored, especially during the harvest and before processing. Controlled fermentation usually takes 15 to 20 days for red wines and about 30 days for white and rosé wines. After the end of alcoholic fermentation on red wines, malolactic fermentation begins, and then Touch premium wines go for two years of aging in carefully selected barrels of French and American oak.
Technically – perfectly executed, but the main secret ingredient of Touch wines is a touch of the deepest emotions of love that consistently follows every step on the way to creating a wine fairy tale. After that, the magic begins… It is a well-known fact that every good story, including ours, love, passion, and dedicated work invested in the cultivation of vine grapes and the production of top wines is accompanied by well-deserved success.
Touch wines are present in the most demanding markets in the world such as China, USA (California) and the EU, and we hereby present them to the domestic market.
