ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The Legend ...

The town of Melnik, Bulgaria holds two superlative distinctions. With a population of a mere 208 inhabitants, it ranks as the Eastern European nation's smallest city. On top of that, the town's long tradition of viticulture is responsible for what is considered the country's most famous bottle of wine.

Farmers grow grapes all over Bulgaria, from the mountains in the west all the way to the Black Sea, and the diversity in landscape and climate results in a wide range of wines. Everyone has their favorite, but the grapes grown in the Melnik region are held in especially high esteem.

Perched in the southern slopes of Bulgaria's Pirin mountain range, Melnik enjoys a moderate, Mediterranean-style climate. A certain broadleaf red grape variety, officially called Shiroka Melnishka, grows only in this specific area. Legend holds that Winston Churchill was fond of the Melnik grape and would have cases of its wine imported for his enjoyment.
