THE TASTE OF SUMMER
There is one proven way to enjoy the warm days and evenings more - a glass of white or rosé wine
Oh, summer! We spend the whole year dreaming about its got days and blissful evenings, about the vacation and the time we will have in the company of the people we love. Summer is the season when we are more relaxed, wear light clothes and flirt, meet new people and strengthen our friendships, when we go to the seaside and travel.
The summer's unbearable lightness becomes even more unbearable when we are not only at the place we want to be with the people we want to be with. The experience becomes richer and more optimistic with a glass of well cooled white or rosé wine in hand. These wines are light and aromatic, charming and exciting, just like summer itself.
Happily, Bulgaria is experiencing a boom in the production of excellent, memorable white and rosé wines. Here grow not only internationally popular varieties like Chardonnay, but also local varieties like Misket Cherven, Dimiat and Keratsuda, each of them with its own character and charm. Of them, a number of dedicated winemakers make drinks to remember. The popularity of the white and rosé wines is evident not only from the increase in demand, but also by the fact that this year in Kazanlak was held for the 7th time a festival dedicated to the rosé wines.Misket and Italian Riesling by
