When we talk about wine, the famous Latin sentence "In vino veritas" involuntarily arises in the mind. But what is the truth about wine in our lands?
The presence of the drink in the Balkans dates back to antiquity, as we are at an important and fertile crossroads between East and West. Wine in the Bulgarian latitudes has been produced more than 5,000 years ago, and the first vines were brought from the Middle East. Then our lands were ruled by the ancient Thracians, who are believed to have laid the foundations of winemaking and viticulture. Proof of this are the gold and silver Thracian treasures discovered in Bulgaria, most of which are beautiful tableware for serving and consuming wine. Over the centuries, winemaking has become a home craft, and today it is a profitable industry, glorifying Bulgaria around the world. It is a well-known fact that even Winston Churchill has ordered 500 liters of Bulgarian wine annually, which proves that it is valued and famous for its taste and sophistication around the world.
Wine has a key role in the Bulgarian traditions, history and way of life, and its presence is mandatory at every national dinner - both in joys and in troubles. Famous Bulgarian grape varieties are Mavrud, Misket, Dimyat, Rubin, Shiroka Melnishka Loza, Pamid, Keratsuda, Gamza.
For all wine connoisseurs and (un)discovered sommeliers Unique Estates is pleased to offer a unique offer from its portfolio, which will take you back to the Bulgarian roots and immerse you in the splendor of the vineyards of the Thracian lowlands.
