The variety is a cross between Shiroka Melnishka and the French Valdiguie. The maturing is done in Bulgarian oak barrels, which further emphasize the grape variety. The result of this symbiosis is simply magnificent.

More about this wine

Villa Melnik

Villa Melnik

Villa Melnik is a family winery, producer of wines of local and foreign varieties with a pronounced Melnik character. It has 300 acres of private vineyards near the town of Melnik and a modern winery, which is open to visitors every day. The winery has an annual capacity for processing about 250 tons of grapes. It is built on three levels and the cellar is dug into the sand hill. The vinification process is organized so that the wine flow moves through the three levels of the winery through the force of gravity. The natural and climatic conditions of the Melnik region are one of the best for wine production in Bulgaria. This is the warmest and sunniest part of Bulgaria. The climate is Mediterranean, with a growing season of 224 days. The vines are located on a hilly terrain facing south. The breeze that descends from the surrounding mountains naturally ventilates the vineyards and does not allow moisture retention.

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.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
