Edoardo Miroglio winery is an impressive 220 hectares of vineyards in Elenovo, Bulgaria. The village of Elenovo is located in the region of Thrace, where the origins of winemaking date back to the cult of Dionysus.
“Grape-growing and wine-making have been traditional for the region ever since Thracian times. Many ancient authors have praised the Thracian wine, and the recipe has been passed from father to son for generations... This is what I was inspired by!” - Edoardo Miroglio
After elaborate analysis and soil tests in the micro-region of Elenovo village, Edoardo Miroglio found that the terroir of Elenovo is unique for Bulgaria and is equally good for cultivating both red and white grape varieties. In 2002, he decided to establish one of the most modern wineries in Bulgaria there, and the winery conducted its first production in October of 2005.
With the idea of combining Italian know-how in the development of vineyards and oenology with the excellent Piedmontese tradition, the overall process for the production of wines is controlled by a group of Italian and Bulgarian oenologists led by the world's famous oenologist Marco Monchiero.
Some of the varieties cultivated by Edoardo Miroglio wine cellar are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Mavrud, Rubin, and Bouquet. It is thought that some native varieties, such as Mavrud, were already grown on the hills of southern Bulgaria more than 5,000 years ago. Edoardo Miroglio became certified organic in 2013, and is considered to be one of the most modern wineries in the country.
