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.

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.
