The Republic of North Macedonia in south-east Europe with the capital Skopje covers 25,713 km². It borders Serbia to the north, Bulgaria to the east, Greece to the south, Albania to the west and Kosovo to the north-west. It is partly located in the north-west of the historical region of Macedonia. The state was founded in 1991 under the name Macedonia following the collapse of the former communist state of Yugoslavia. For historical reasons, both Macedonia and Greece (for the region of Macedonia with the three-fingered peninsula of Chalkidiki and the monastic republic of Athos) claimed it as their own. After many years of dispute, the two states reached an agreement in 2018. On 12 February 2019, the region was officially renamed North Macedonia (Republika Severna Makedonija).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
