In September Augeo Family Estate will reveal four new red wines. A few days ago we bottled Augeo Ruen 2017, and today we are finalizing the bottling of the new vintage of Augeo Melnik 55 2017. In the following weeks we will finish the preparation and the bottling of Augeo Mavrud Reserve 2016 and Augeo Merlot Reserve 2016. We cannot wait until you taste them!
Augeo Family Estate Exquisite Rose 2017 was competing with wines from some of the most famous wineries in the world in the largest international wine challenge in North America Sélections Mondiales des Vins Canada and with its high marks won a gold medal in this year’s 25th edition of the competition. It is the only Bulgarian rose to receive a recognition in Canada this year.
“Our joy from the well-deserved international recognition is indescribable,” shared Gergana Manolova, Marketing Director and partner in the firm Exquisite Wines. “Two months after those who appreciate Bulgarian wine in the local market tasted Augeo Family Estate Exquisite Rose 2017, it received this prestigious award in such a competitive challenge,” she added.
Over 1770 wines from 446 producers from 31 countries were tasted in this year’s edition of the challenge with quarter of a century history. In the week between 24th and 28th of May in Quebec the international jury of the competition, which included over 60 wine experts from 15 countries, choose the winners after a blind tasting of each participating wine. Only the ones with the highest marks received medals, one of which was Augeo Family Estate Exquisite Rose 2017.
This success for Bulgarian wine proves again that high quality wines from our country are recognized in international wine competitions.
Canada is a large importer of wine from all over the world with increasing interest towards European wines. Only in 2016, Canada imported 500 million liters of wine from all over the world, making it one of the most important world markets for wine.
Exclusively at The View Restaurant three of the wines of Augeo Family Estate could be found in the wine list in new, small bottles of 375 ml.
Augeo Sauvignon Blanc, Augeo Chardonnay Barrel and Augeo Exquisite Rose could be tasted in the mini format and limited series.
Soon after the wines of Augeo Family Estate – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay Barrel, Rose and Exquisite Rose debuted in front of the Bulgarian audience in The View Restaurant Sofia, they were sent to participate several international wine competitions. The four wines left for different destinations in Asia, America and Europe with the hope to follow in the footsteps of their predecessor Augeo Family Estate Melnik 55 2016 that won two medals already and is expecting the results from more competitions later this year.
We can only hope that Bulgarian wines will be accepted well abroad as they are at home. The results from the competitions are expected later this summer. Follow the webpage and Augeo Family Estate’s Facebook page for the latest information.
In 2018 Augeo Family Estate’s portfolio will be extended with six new wines. In late March 2018 two white wines and two roses Augeo Family Estate will make their debut.
Augeo Family Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2017 will be for those who like fresh white wines with character. Augeo Family Estate Chardonnay Barrel 2016 follows the trends of making Chardonnay as its aromas and tastes are complex and with a hint of oak, but the oak does not dominate the palate at all.
Augeo Family Estate Rose 2017 is a wine with fruity aromas and tastes from the Bulgarian grape variety Shiroka Melnishka. It will be the favorite drink by the glass at The View Restaurant in the summer and will take you to the coast of the French Riviera because of its Provencal style. Augeo Family Estate Exquisite Rose made with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is for those who like exquisite roses.
In the Fall the successor of the award-winning wine Augeo Family Estate Melnik 55 from the new vintage, 2017 will be released, along with Augeo Family Estate Ruen 2017, another wine for those who enjoy drinking wines from typical Bulgarian varieries.
