"We are extremely proud and happy that the first wine in Augeo Family Estate's portfolio received yet another recognition from an international competition," said Gergana Manolova, Marketing Director and partner in the producing firm Exquisite Wines. "Wine from this traditional Bulgarian variety Melnik 55 to be amongst the winners of a double gold medal only four months after its debut on the Bulgarian market is a huge accomplishment," she added.
CWSA is the biggest and most prestigious wine challenge in China. Traditionally the best wines from over 55 countries participate in it. This year over 5,000 wines participated, a record-breaking. On a blind tasting over 100 jury members from all over the world give their marks for the quality of the wine.
This huge success is yet another proof that Bulgarian wines are highly awarded at international competitions.
Augeo Melnik 55 has medium intensity and purple colour. It's first international recognition was in November 2017 when it became the only Bulgarian wine to win a medal from the prestigious British wine competition, International Wine Challenge 2018.
Augeo Melnik 55 is sold exclusively at The View Restaurant Sofia since the end of October 2017. In late March 2018 Augeo Family Estate will add to its portfolio two whites and two roses – Augeo Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Augeo Chardonnay 2016, Augeo Rose Shiroka Melnishka 2017 and Augeo Exquisite Rose Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. This Fall Augeo Melnik 55 2017 and Augeo Ruen 2017 will be released.
