The vineyards are located in the village of Harsovo and are cultivated biodynamically. The climate is Mediterranean. Sangiovese comes from an individual vineyard.

The two varieties are vinified separately. One part of both wines are aged in French oak barrels, second and third fill, and the rest in stainless steel vessels.

After reaching the desired organoleptic profile, the two wines are blended. The batch consists of 3460 bottles. On the nose, aromas of tomato leaf, green herbs and sour cherries can be detected. The palate confirms the aromas. There is a pleasant freshness and medium, ripe tannins. The wine will develop its potential over the next 4 to 6 years.

AYA Estate Vineyards

AYA Estate Vineyards

AYA Estate Vineyards is a company, the successor of viticultural knowledge for several generations, with over 80 years of experience in artisanal wine production. These traditions determine the direction of the project - the revival of endemic Bulgarian varieties and focusing on the terroir expression of wine, thanks to working with nature, not against it. The main massifs are located in southwestern Bulgaria, in the village of Harsovo, Melnik region, but also have 10 hectares in northeastern Bulgaria, only 2 km from the Black Sea, near Cape Kaliakra, which determines the freshness of white wines produced by Seewines. , especially emblematic of which is Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyards in Harsovo, from which the Shiroka Melnishka vine grapes are extracted, are over 50 years old, and the new plantations with Sira, although still young, impress with their potential and the pronounced peppery characteristics of the variety. Seewines follows the principles of biodynamics, both in the vineyards and in the wine production itself, maintains the biodiversity in and around the vineyards and practices the most sparing and environmentally friendly viticulture.

Struma Valley

Struma Valley

The Struma Valley region covers the Southwestern part of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian part of Macedonia. The climate of the region is specific and is highly influenced by the warm currents from the Mediterranean Sea. The main grape varieties here are the local endemic Shiroka Melnishka vine, Melnik 55 (cross between Shiroka Melnishka vine and the French variety Valdigie), but also the international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and others. Due to the dryer climate and the higher temperatures, the wines develop warm southern tones in the aroma, with nuances of ripe fruit and a densely rich body. Of particular interest are the wines from Shiroka Melnik vine, partly due to the fact that the variety is difficult to grow because it ripens in late autumn. Today, the region is the most dynamically developing in Bulgaria, with many new, small, family owned wineries, increasingly focused on the quality and terroir expression of the wines they produce.

Sangiovese

Sangiovese

Sangiovese (or Nielluccio in Corsica), a dark-berried vine, synonymous with the red wines of Tuscany, and all the romanticism that goes with the territory. Sangiovese is the core constituent in some of the great names in Italian wine thanks to its ability to balance between its high acidity and firm tannic structure. Its characteristic flavours of dark cherries and black stone fruit are backed by secondary notes of dried tomato and herbs. The use of oak enriches the flavours toward plum and even wild raspberry. In Tuscany, Sangiovese is the sole grape variety permitted in the prestigious Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and provides the backbone to Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the popular wines of Chianti.
