During The Odrysian Wine Trail 3-day wine tour we will visit the following wineries:

Edoardo Miroglio

An Italian entrepreneur with a family history in wine-making invests in a wine cellar in Bulgaria. What does that tell you? Probably that there must be something worthwhile here. And there is – the unique soils and terroir in the micro-region of Elenovo where Edoardo Miroglio wine cellar is located. The Edoardo Miroglio Wine Cellar produces high-quality red and white wines and has a slight penchant for the production of single vineyard wines and traditional method sparkling wines. If the Thracians were the fathers of Bulgarian wine production, then Edoardo Miroglio Wine Cellar is their child who proudly carries on the tradition.

Minkov Brothers

The history of Minkov Brothers Wine Cellar dates back to 1875 when the three brothers Ivan, Vasil and Nikifor Minkovi established the winery. Minkov Brothers Wine Cellar gained the first international recognition for Bulgarian wine when it won gold medal at the prestigious World Wine Fair in Brussels in 1894. The modern winery, built in the 21st century at the site of the old winery’s vineyards, has preserved the age-old tradition of making wine whilst improving themselves with the use of new technologies and fresh ambition. At Minkov Brothers you can try the unique red cuvée of a red variety (Syrah) and a white one (Viognier). One of the newest brands of the winery – Le Photographe –  is also an interesting wine that stands out due to its emphasis on local terroir and follows the original winery’s footsteps by winning international recognition at each competition it participates in.
