We now also offer a selection of Bulgarian wines. The wines we have included in our offer stand out in terms of quality vs price. Despite its often first-class quality, Bulgarian winemaking is still not valued as highly as it deserves in our country or in the West. This means, however, that you can purchase high quality wine without having to pay any unnecessary “snob tax”.
We have wines from small, family-run wineries as well as from large enterprises with foreign capital and know-how. What they have in common is quality and interesting flavours that we carefully test. Here you will find wines from respected varieties known all over the world such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but also specific Bulgarian varieties like Mavrud, Gamza and Dimiat. The wines mature in oak barrels as standard. The majority of the wines are dry.
The winemaking tradition in Bulgaria again stretches back to the ancient Thracians, who consumed wine in abundant quantities. Their southern neighbours at that time, the Ancient Greeks, did not mince their words when discussing the famous drinking of the Thracians, and were also shocked that, unlike them, the Thracians drunk undiluted wine. And it was precisely in Thrace, today southern Bulgaria, that the cult of Dionysus was born. If you are curious about the undiluted ancient wine used in pagan ceremonies, you can try the purely local Mavrud, one of the very oldest grape varieties. You may very probably be approaching that taste.
