Man’s first wine ever may have fermented in the Bulgarian lands. Viticulture and wine producing in the lands of present-day Bulgaria are dating back to 6,000 BC!
It is only in Bulgaria, that the wine of the ancient Thracians is still produced and drunk – the full-bodied red Mavrud. The Mavrud vine grows only in this region of Bulgaria and nowhere else.
Small Bulgaria is one of the world’s largest wine producers together with France, Spain, Italy and Greece.
