* We recommend to serve this wine slightly chilled. Perfect on its own as well in combination with food.



A very interesting point in this wine is the technology it was made by. Half of the wine fermented with wild yeast - not spontaneous fermentation, important to say. The other half – with cultivated yeast. Then it aged on the lees (sur lie) for 10 months in order to concentrate more taste and freshness. The wine had no contact with oak during its production. In order to preserve its uniqueness and fruity character,  the wine maker chose not to furthuer processed and stabilize the wine. It was only roughly filtered before bottling.

Review from Ed Huijzer, tasted at the Dutch Wine Festivals

It was nicely busy again and sure a successful event. Bulwine participated at the Dutch Wine Festivals in Groesbeek. Beside wine lovers who knew us from previous editions, we reached a lot of new people there. And, of course, the surprise for them was even greater. 

Plovdiv in Bulgaria - European Capital of Culture 2019

Plovdiv is the first Bulgarian city to take on the mantel of European Capital of Culture. This beautiful Bulgarian city of Plovdiv is also one of the oldest in Europe. The slogan of the city is 'Antique and Eternal'. Located in south-central Bulgaria, Plovdiv is not only an important administrative, industrial and cultural centre, with many universities, various colleges, institutes and museums, but also the birthplace of lots of great wines.

Bulwine goes a step further ...
