Vinification Details

  • These grapes have been picked at their optimum ripeness and have been fermented in stainless steel tanks. This wine has undergone malolactic fermentation to ensure a soft and a smooth finish


  • Located south of the Balkan Mountains, bounded by the Black Sea to the east and Greece to the south, Bulgaria's Thracian Valley is considered by many historians to be one of the oldest winemaking regions in the world

Regional Information

  • The Thracian Lowlands have a mild climate, rolling hills and a maritime influence that provide a perfect environment to grow grapes. The Balkan Mountains serve to block the cold winds blowing from the plains of Russia, and the region to the south of the Balkans, the valley drained by the Maritsa River, has a Mediterranean climate, with mild, rainy winters and warm, dry summers

4 stars

This Thracian Merlot is very much underrated and ,in my opinion, is up there with some much more expensive Merlot’s. I’ve noticed that it is improved by being allowed to breath or decanted.

a Merlot to savour

Smooth, fruity, undistinguished but terrific value

4 stars

A smooth, inoffensive Merlot with a fruity finish. Undistinguished and lacking in character, but as an easy, everyday drinking wine this is astonishingly good value. Certainly, the best wine I have found at around this price.
