History & Geography
Villa Melnik is situated in the Melnik Region, Struma River Valley, South West Bulgaria. The region benefits from a warm Mediterranean climate. The terroir is characterized by sandy soils, which allow water to seep through, as well as limestone and volcanic deposits from the nearby extinct volcano Kozhuh. We do not treat our vineyards with any pesticides and do not use any damaging practices that may create pollution or in any way harm our grapes or the people who enjoy our wines. Villa Melnik specializes in indigenous grape varieties such as Melnik and Mavrud. In addition to award-winning reds, whites and roses, the winery also produces orange wines and noble sweet wines from late harvested grapes. The winery’s architecture enables a “gravity-flow” production process, which means both energy-efficiency and a minimal-intervention, gentle approach to winemaking.
