"This Mavrud finished its fermentation and matured in a concrete egg with minimal but timely technological interventions just as it had to." For us, in regards to Mavrud, the less oak, the better, so there is no oak here, just a pure manifestation of the vineyard and the harvest, "said Alex Velyanov, the winemaker.

Thirst Wines

Thirst Wines

Thirst Wines are three wines created by two people - Alexander Velyanov, oenologist and Stefan Gonev, designer. Both with over 40 years of experience in the wine industry. They do not have their own vineyards and cellar. This is what gave them the freedom to choose varieties, regions and terroirs.

Thracian valley

Thracian valley

In this region, which includes Southern Bulgaria, the climate is temperate continental protected from northern winds thanks to Stara Planina, with good rain distribution. It includes the central parts of the Thracian lowland and parts of Sakar. Most of the red grape varieties are concentrated in this area. Mavrud, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Muscat, Pamid and others are grown. The climatic conditions of the region favour the production of rich, dense, memorable red wines, especially from the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Mavrud. Good wines from the local variety Mavrud are especially valued for their aroma and taste of small red fruits, spices and herbs.

Mavrud

Mavrud

Mavrud is a dark-skinned grape variety of Bulgarian origin, widely planted in the Thracian valley, more precisely in the region of Asenovgrad. The grape’s name is derived from the Greek mavro, meaning black, and the wines it produces usually are of an inky colour. They also have pronounced tannins and excellent acidity, with stewed-fruit flavours on the palate with some herbal characteristics. It is no easy task to produce wine from Mavrud alone, but whoever succeeds creates a wine that certainly does not lack character.
