Ruen is an unique Bulgarian grape variety, which was selected in 1964 in Plovdiv after crossing Shiroka Melnishka Loza with Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are small with a strong purple skin, which afterwards gives the rich color to the wine. The wines from Ruen grapes are fresh, with harmonic taste and with potential for aging.
