The winery was designed in traditional 19th-century Macedonian style, and its tower is a dedicated tasting room, decorated with local furnishings and offering spectacular views over the estate. It's usually only used for group tastings – enquire ahead if there's a few of you and you'd like to do a tasting. Informative (free) tours of the vineyard and the site's heritage run four times a day.

Popova Kula is well signposted upon entering Demir Kapija; it lies up an 800m dirt road past the cemetery.
