• Augeo Family Estate with a gold medal at The Balkans International Wine Competition 2020

    Augeo Family Estate Melnik 55 2018 is a gold medalist at The Balkans International Wine Competition 2020 (BIWC). The ninth edition of BIWC 2020 took place in Belgrade, Serbia between September 9th and 11th 2020. The date had to be changed twice due to the pandemic situation. Wine experts from over 20 countries, along with the Chairman of the jury Mr Konstantinos Lazarakis MW tasted and graded the wines during the competition.

    “In regard to the dynamic situation this year, this is the only competition where an Augeo Family Estate wine is participating, which is why we are extremely proud of the result,” shared Gergana Manolova from the family of the producers.

    The third wine of Augeo Family Estate from the grape variety Melnik 55 confirmed the success of the already depleted earlier vintages. With the participation in the prestigious competition, Augeo Family Estate proved once again that the Bulgarian wine has excellent qualities.

    The gold medalist Augeo Family Estate Melnik 55 2018 has deep cherry color. The intensive aroma combines ripe forest fruits, strawberries, dried fruits and accents of forest herbs and vanilla cream. The taste is complex and rich, with sweet notes of ripe fruits, cinnamon and forest herbs. The wine was aged for 12 months in new 225L Bulgarian oak barrels, which give intensive notes of oak in the taste. It has the characteristic of the grape variety medium body and a spicy finish. The potential for aging in the bottle is long and probably the wine will develop well and will keep its strong points for 3 or more years after bottling.

  • Augeo Family Estate and over 200 people celebrated the wine holiday

    February and Trifon Zarezan did not reach an agreement to have good weather and on the festive day it rained heavily. Because of that, there was a change in the originally planned location – Augeo Family Estate’s vineyards. At 10 AM Augeo’s team was ready to welcome the first guests at the central square of Vranya village. There was everything needed for the holiday – open bottles of all of Augeo’s wines, tasty food and music.

    Responsible for the good mood were Folklore Dance Theater Nayden Kirov from Ruse and another orchestra of local performers. Guests and locals danced “horo”, national folk dances.

    In addition to the originally planned vertical tasting of three vintages of Augeo Melnik 55 and two of Augeo Ruen, the visitors tasted the newest wine of Augeo, the not yet bottled red Augeo Family Estate Shiroka Melnishka Loza 2019 (Broad-leaved Melnik variety).

    The day did not pass without the ritual of pruning. Priest Angel from Vranya wished for a good vintage and the guests pruned a few vines from Shiroka Melnishka Loza close to the center of the village.

    The celebration of Trifon Zarezan this year took place during event Melnik Wineries Open Doors 2020, organized by Melnik Wine Routes. More photos of the event are available on social media https://www.facebook.com/AugeoFamilyEstate/ and https://www.instagram.com/augeofamilyestate/
