This project is about wine branding for a local winery in Skopje, North Macedonia. The name of the wine is the surname of the owner of the wine. The wine is vintage 2020, plant production and organic in conversion. The whole branding (logo & package design) is classic and minimal.

The word Vranec means strong, black, and powerful horse (black stallion), and wine made from this grape variety is associated with strength, potency, and success. Vranec also means raven-colored or black, which is why the wine is known also as black wine in Macedonia.

The old Georgian variety is introduced in Macedonia around the 1950s mostly planted in Vardar River Valley region. In the Skopje wine district, it ripens in the middle of September. The wines are characterized by harmony, freshness, and distinctive varietal flavor.

The color of the wine made of Stanushina is characteristically pale, but it has a rich extract and high acidity level which gives the wine an exquisite freshness. People with refined taste adore this wine and never miss the opportunity to grab a bottle of wine for themselves when visiting Macedonia.
