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 grapes have a controlled yield and are picked by hand. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels of 225 liters for 14 months, which gave the wine its vanilla and chocolate notes.
