Orbelia Winery

Orbelia Winery

Orbelia is a family winery founded by Kostadin Chorbadjiiski and his family in 2013. It is located at the foot of Mount Belasitsa, near the village of Kolarovo, 12 km. west of Petrich. Orbelia is the ancient Thracian name of the mountain range and means white, beautiful mountain. Orbelia has its own vineyards, which grow international varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Syrah, but special attention is paid to local ones - Melnik 55, Sandanski Muscat and others. Traditional methods of vinification are used and some of the wines are aged in French, Bulgarian and American oak barrels.

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.
