WINE OF THE MONTH

Bononia Estate Gamza
Gamza is a red grape variety that has been cultivated in northern Bulgaria since ancient times. In north-western Bulgaria, the grapes achieve technological maturity earlier – around September – because the accumulation of sugar is more intense. In general, Gamza thrives best at windy hills with rich soils. Gamza requires a warm and dry autumn in order for the wines to be of good quality. Gamza is not particularly resilient to low winter temperatures, although it prefers cooler climates which is the reason why it is mostly cultivated in northern Bulgaria. The wines from Gamza are full-bodied and harmonious, but their quality is highly dependent on the climatic conditions, especially in the autumn. When the autumn is dry and warm, the wines from Gamza have a vivid, although not very dense, ruby colour, a pleasant taste of small red fruits, most notably raspberry, distinct freshness and delicate tannins.

THE SECRETS OF THE BULGARIAN WINE

Bulgaria is a timeless country located at the crossroad between Europe and Asia, nestled between Greece, Turkey, Macedonia, Romania and Serbia. A magical place where century-old traditions are a core element of life, where ancient history and cultural heritage are the pride of the nation, the mountainous landscapes are beautiful and rugged, and where food and wine are wholesome, flavourful and distinctive. Vine growing and winemaking have been part of Bulgarian culture since time immemorial. And who wouldn’t grow wine in Bulgaria – its sunlit hills, fertile soils and geographic latitude (equivalent to central Italy or southern France to the west) provide the perfect vine growing conditions practically all over the country.
