Orbelus Winery

Orbelus Winery

Orbelus is the first certified organic winery in Bulgaria. It has over 200 decares, divided into 20 separate mini-massifs along the Struma Valley, each with specific characteristics of soil, humidity, air, wind and other elements of the terroir. They say about themselves: "we are not afraid to experiment at every stage, from the vineyards we see - from the use of techniques in the winery to the blends that go into the bottle."

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.

Assyrtiko (Assyrtico or Asyrtiko) is probably the most emblematic wine grape variety in Greece. It originates and is best grown on the volcanic island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea. The variety is quite versatile and its wines can be found in many styles, from fresh and mineral white wines to rich, nut-dessert, known as Vinsanto. On the island of Santorini there are up to 70-year-old vines, and, of course, this age affects the quality of wine - yields decrease and the concentration of aromas in the fruit gives the potential for production of complex and rich wines. The volcanic soils of the vineyards on the island do not allow the spread of phylloxera and here the vines do not need to be grafted on rootstocks. The harsh climatic conditions of the island - strong winds and hot sun - determine the unconventional form of growing Assyrtico - in "baskets" whose walls are made of plant stems and leaves, thus providing shelter for the fruit and protecting them from strong winds. Limited water resources in the soil force growers to plant the vines farther apart than generally accepted standards. Assirtiko is an oxidation-resistant variety used by Santorini winemakers in the production of Vinsanto sweet wines. By controlling the level of oxidation, darker wines with the characteristics of fig, coffee, kirsch and chocolate can be obtained. In the form of dry white wine, Assirtiko has a yellow-golden color with aromas of pear, apple and citrus, as well as fine minerality in the aftertaste. Naturally high acidity means that Assyrtico wines can be aged for many years.
