Winery adds bubbly white wine and rosé to its limited Vineyards Selection series
Villa Yambol is ready with its first naturally sparkling wines manufactured using classic methods. They are featured in the premium Vineyards Selection BRUT series. The white sparkling wine was made from grapes of the Chardonnay variety while the rosé is made from the Cabernet Sauvignon gape variety. The grapes come from the Topolitsa and Tenevo micro-regions from vineyards planted 10 years ago following meticulous analyses of the soils, solar irradiation and even the direction of the prevalent winds. The vineyards are laid out based on a wind rose, a nautical orientation tool which indicates the direction and speed of air currents, all in an effort to allow the grapes to realize their full potential.
The wines from the Vineyards Selection BRUT series are made using the Méthode Champenoise, which creates naturally sparkling wines through a process that takes place after bottling. Bottles are aged for at least 43 months before degorgage (a process during which the sediments are frozen and manually extracted from the bottle before the bottle is sealed) and are then kept in a horizontal position in boxes, insulating them from sunlight, at an ambient temperature of about 16°С.
“Making naturally sparkling wines takes a lot of hard work, time, dedication and a considerable investment. However, we believe that the wine culture of the domestic consumer is growing and an ever increasing number of wine lovers will take notice of the quality of the wines we make here. What is more, they hold their own against any of the French sparkling wines but are priced more reasonably,“ Villa Yambol Executive Director Krassimir Avramov says and he has worked in this industry for more than 30 years. He believes that the result of all the efforts of the winery’s staff are indicative of the high level of professionalism of the winery managed by him. For now, only a limited number of bottles from the naturally sparkling wines of the Vineyards Selection will be sold, some 5,000 bottles of the white wine and 3,000 more of the rosé.Back to News
