The Kabile series of wines won 8 medals from one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the US, the Los Angeles International Wine Competition.

Kabile Syrah Reserve 2015, Kabile Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2016, Kabile Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Kabile Mavrud and Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 won silver and Kabile Syrah 2018 took home the bronze. Villa Yambol added a total of 10 medals to its collection because besides the success of the Kаbile series, it received a silver medal for Vineyards Selection Bolyarovo Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, and a bronze medal for Vineyards Selection Topolnitsa 2016.
“We are very happy that we won gold medals with our white and rosé wines from the Kabile series because over the past several years most of the successes of Bulgaria’s wine industry came with red wines. Moreover, the wine experts in California, which is a traditional maker of chardonnays, are especially demanding with regard to this particular wine variety. We managed to impress them with a pure Chardonnay and with a blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc and at a very competitive price at that, which is testament of our potential as a quality manufacturer of white wines with excellent value,“ Villa Yambol CEO Krassimir Avramov commented. He pointed out that the 2021 vintage was exceptionally good to work with because the superb quality of the grapes allowed the winery to make excellent wines with rich aromas and tastes.
