Just 25 years ago the vast majority of Bulgarian wine was produced by small farmers as a side line to their primary agricultural enterprises. Whilst the quality of wine was often excellent, there was little attempt to increase the scale of production and widen the appeal outside the local communities where the wine was produced. However, during the last couple of decades’ Bulgarian wine production has undergone a major transformation.
Realising the business potential of good quality wine, commercially minded producers devoted more of their energy and land to the cultivation of different varieties of grapes and wine making. As vineyards grew in size and numbers, modern production systems were introduced. The volume and range of wines grew dramatically and Bulgarian wine was reaching new markets.
Today, Bulgarian wine can be found in most supermarkets and wine stores throughout Europe and is fast becoming globally recognised as serious competition to the more established wine producing countries such as France, Italy, Spain and South Africa. The international travel trade has also embraced the Bulgarian wine industry with tours of Bulgarian vineyards increasingly appearing on tour operator’s schedules.
