In December 2020, just before the Holidays, we launched our newest red wine from the series Augeo Family Estate – Augeo Family Estate Shiroka Melnishka Loza and Merlot 2019.

Augeo Family Estate Shiroka Melnishka Loza and Merlot 2019 includes 70% of the typical variety ‎from Struma Valley and 30% Merlot. The wine has medium intensity color with attractive crimson ‎notes. The aromas are the characteristic for Shiroka Melnishka Loza strawberries, white cherries ‎and red fruit. The distinctive aromas for Merlot blueberry, blackberry and chocolate could be felt as ‎well. The taste reconfirms the aromas with additional fruit notes that could be savored. The wine ‎has a long finish and potential for aging. The series is limited to 2679 bottles.‎

The Shiroka Melnishka Loza grapes came from our own vineyards near Vranya village, planted in ‎‎1955. The grape variety Shiroka Melnishka Loza was named after the broad leaves of its vine and ‎after the region where the grapes grows – Melnik. The grape variety is unique and cannot be found ‎anywhere else around the world. Merlot is an international variety, originating from France. In our ‎country it grows well in the Thracian valley in the regions with stony soil and long hours of sunshine. ‎The ‎wines have a protected geographical indication Thracial Valley.‎
