    • OUR WINES

      The grapes for our wines are produced from proprietary vineyard, located in the Thracian plain. The compulsory “green pruning” is utilized in order to reduce the yield to the required quantities. The physical and chemical properties of the grape fruits and the soil are constantly monitored. The grape clusters are gathered by hand and are placed in small crates. Then the crates are sent to the cellar, where the clusters are sorted and processed. The wine is bottled and is left for couple of month to mature.

    REGION

    The Upper Thracian plain is part of the historical and geographic area of Thracia and it is most commonly overlaid with the name of Thracia, the cradle of wine manufacturing. White and red grape varieties are grown in that area, but the red wines are dominant in terms of quantity and dignity. The area is mostly flat, but the vineyards are located on hill terrains in the foothills of Sredna Gora, Rhodope mountains and Sakar. The favorable temperatures and appropriate forest and sand-clay soils are extremely appropriate for red wine grape varieties. The most common varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mavrud. The village of Smilec has long history through the centuries. Its existence can be traced back to the Thracians. The Romans have populated these lands since II century B.C and in the VII century, the area was populated by Slavs.
