In 2002, Edoardo Miroglio, an Italian textile and wine producer from the Piedmont region, discovered the Thracian region of Bulgaria and its perfect soil and climate for producing quality wines. The winery is located in Elenovo, a village in the northeastern province of Targovishte.
Grape-growing and wine-making have been a tradition in the region since ancient Thracian times, dating back an incredible 3,000 to 5,000 years ago. Combing this superb terroir with Italian winemaking know-how in viticulture and viniculture, the estate produced its first wine in October 2005. The process is managed by a team of Italian and Bulgarian oenologists led by the world’s famous winemaker Marco Monchiero.
Surrounded by 220 hectares of vineyards, the winery is an impressive blend of modern winemaking technology and architecture inspired by the region’s ancient past. In 2013, the Edoardo Miroglio winery obtained organic certification for its Bouquet, Gewurztraminer, Viognier, Mavrud, and Rubin grapes. The estate is one of the most modern wineries in Bulgaria. They also grow several other French and Bulgarian varieties.
The vineyards are located on a slope above the village of Elenovo. The planting density is about 5,000 vines per hectare. Average spring and autumn temperatures are characterized by wide temperature differences. The average rainfall is generally perfect. Summers are warm with low humidity. Harvesting is by hand.
The winery specializes in quality white, rosé, and red wines, as well as sparkling wine made in the traditional method, plus rakia, and liqueur. The annual production capacity of Edoardo Miroglio winery is approximately one million liters of wine. The winemaking team manages all aspects of production from harvesting to bottling, which are performed onsite. A state-of-the-art laboratory ensures the quality of the wine. Aging takes place in high-quality French oak barrels.
