More about this product



Damyanov Family Cellar is located in the heart of the valley of the Struma River, in the village of Strumyani, 12 km. from the town of Sandanski, Southwestern Bulgaria. Wine and vineyards have always occupied a special place for the family, as the beginning was given by Prokop Spasov Marinkov (grandfather Kope), a participant in the Second World War. After the end of the war, he established a serious agricultural farm, including vineyards, and was a respected and recognizable farmer - until the nationalization of the land in socialist Bulgaria. After 1991 and the return of the land, Janusz Damianov, grandfather Kope's son-in-law, played a major role in the restoration of the farm. Yanush Damyanov is a long-term school principal and a prominent public figure in the region, posthumously declared an honorary citizen of Strumyani municipality. The whole family, headed by Vladimir Damyanov, son of Janusz, took part in the subsequent cultivation and development of the vineyard. As a natural continuation of this family love for the vineyards, the idea of ​​family winemaking was born. And today, thanks to hard work and perseverance, the idea has been realized. This is a family cellar of boutique type, which produces handicraft wines with their own individuality and character in small, limited series.

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.

Broad-Leaved Melnik

Broad-Leaved Melnik

Melnik or Shiroka Melnishka loza ( Broadleaved vine of Melnik ) is an exceptionally rare variety grown only in the region of the town of Melnik and specifically in the appellation of Harsovo village. Melnik can produce powerful wines that respond well to extended maturation in oak. They tend to be exotically perfumed, richly textured and have ample tannins. Actually, the variety benefits from the long, stable autumn weather of the region and the main challenge for the producer is to have the patience to wait for the full ripeness of this late ripening variety - which usually happens in mid-October.
