Bulgarian wine declared best in the world


Bulgarian red wine from the Minkov Brothers cellar has won for the first time in history the biggest world award in the industry. In competition with 12 250 wines from all over world the Cabernet Sauvignon &
Cabernet Franc from the Bulgarian cellar won the first prize at the Decanter World Wine Awards in London. This way the Bulgarian wine became one of the 180 best ones on the planet. The Minkov Brothers cellar is situated near the town of Karnobat in South-eastern Bulgaria and was established in 1875. The cellar’s Enologists combine the ancient technologies with the contemporary trends in wine making. The unique combination of climate and soils is an important factor for the development of the wine industry in the region of Karnobat. The high quality of the wine and its unique taste made it a favourite of a number of experts in London. Journalist and wine expert Angela Muir was part of the jury at the competition and she dedicated an article to the Minkov Brothers cellar in the British magazine Decanter. The Enologists writes about the uniqueness of the Bulgarian wines and adds that the Cabernet Sauvignon &
Cabernet Franc wine of Minkov Brothers cellars fulfils the Bulgarian promise for a successful return to the world wine arena. Ms. Muir expressed satisfaction that the legendary Bulgarian cellar continues to develop wine culture in Bulgaria and present new and unknown types of wine to the Bulgarian market. The awarded wine was made using a classic technology and matured in new French oak casks for 20 months. The wine was produced in limited quantity and is offered in the best Bulgarian restaurants, as well as the cellar itself.

Regulating wine production in Bulgaria

In 2012 a new law could regulate production of wine and spirits in Bulgaria, as the sector is among the worst affected by the grey sector of the economy in the country. In the last days of 2011 the government presented a draft bill for the sector, which is yet to be adopted by the MPs in the National Assembly.

According to government the old bill adopted in the end of the 90s must be changed in a way to meet the latest amendments to the European legislation concerning the wine industry. The draft bill focuses on guaranteeing the quality of wines and spirits and increasing the control over trade with such products. Created after a year and a half of discussions with Bulgarian vine growers and wine makers, the new draft bill was assessed by experts as “practical and business-oriented.” A number of administrative concessions will also be introduced.

The new bill defines strict rules for the production wine and spirits. The law firmly states that wines can be produced only from grape. Adding spirit to it is forbidden, while adding sugar is allowed only in cases when experts prove the need. The law states that traditional Bulgarian alcoholic beverages are five types of rakia (a type of brandy), mastika (a strong anise-flavoured drink, and Menta (a sweet mint liqueur). The five types of rakia are grape, wine, fruit, and marc. A beverage with less than 37.5% of alcohol cannot be called rakia. Grape rakia will be strictly 40% alcohol, while mastika will not be less than 47%. Wines with protected designation of origin are also recognized in the new law. Wines will also pass through laboratory tests. The new law states spirits must be sold bottled, while draft wine can be sold only after having a laboratory-issued certificate that the product is good for consumption and does not contain additives.
Violators selling wine and spirits with unknown origin will be imposed fines starting from 5,000 euro. Fines for counterfeit alcohol production reach 15,000 euro. The Executive Agency on Vine and Wine will control the quality of wine and spirits. The Agency will be also authorized to control the trade with alcoholic beverages in restaurants and shops.


The new law aims to combat the grey sector and also to boost the competitiveness of Bulgarian wine production abroad, through guaranteeing the highest quality. This way Bulgaria could return to traditional markets and enter new ones.
