It has taken some time to find a suitable Shiroka Melnik (SML) to fight the star Pinot Noir but our patience has been rewarded. This lovely wine is made from Rumi, the winemaker of Villa Melnik  in Melnik region. It is bright, fresh and lean with sweet red cherry fruit and an appealing savoury character. An herbaceous note lifts the finish and the tannins are fine, adding definition. This is a fresh, pure, mineral style of Shiroka Melnik which can blow your mind out…

Villa Melnik

Villa Melnik Winery is a family-owned company. It has about 30 hectares of vineyards and a newly built modern winery in one of the most celebrated wine-making regions of Bulgaria: The Melnik Region.

They grow local and foreign varieties: from the reds – Broad-leaved Melnik Vine, Early Melnik Vine (Melnik 55), Mavrud, Ruen, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese; from the whites – the local varieties Keratsuda, Sandanski Misket, and the classics – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier.

The winery is situated on a picturesque hill among the vineyards. The state-of-the-art facilities meet all the requirements of modern winemaking and enable a gravity-fed wine-making process. The tunnels carved into the sandstone hill naturally provide a constant temperature, perfect for storing and aging the wines. The winery is open for visits to both expert connoisseurs and beginner wine enthusiasts.

The team’s efforts are concentrated on creating short series of high-quality wines that will reinstate the legendary fame of the Melnik wine. They earned 4 gold and 2 bronze medals at the International Wine Contest Vinaria in 2011 and 2012, as well as a gold medal for their wine AplauZ - Melnik 55 and a silver medal for the white blend Bergul? – Chardonnay and Viognier аt the First Balkans International Wine Competition in 2012.

The winery has a newly-formed team, but its members have rich experience in vine growing and wine production. Every year, their workers cross-train at several vineyards in Bordeaux, France in order to improve their skills and learn best practices. The head winemaker is Rumyana . She has a degree in enology and long experience withing different wineries and wine regions.

Villa Melnik Winery sells its wines under the following labels: “AplauZ” and “Bergule” for its high-end wines; “Villa Melnik – Family Tradition” and “Melenik” for its standard range. You can also find our wines packaged in Bag in Box from 3 or 5 liters.
