Origin: Thracian Valley, Elenovo-Bulgaria.
Good to know:
-During the Soviet era, Russia has always been the number one consumer of Bulgarian wines.
-With the Perestroika, there was a crisis between viticulturists and winemakers, consequently the wine quality was not as great and the wine export was at stake.
-After the integration to the EU, more institutions and investors were willing to own a vineyard (some of the owners recuperated their land and vineyards during "post-communism") and so they started cultivating the grape and making the wine.
-Bulgaria benefited from the EU funding programs and the adoption of National strategies that support the wine growing sector.
-Bulgaria's main wine export market is now Poland.
-Their wines are well known for its Bordelais varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. They are grown in the Danubian plains, around the Danube.
