Georgiev & Milkov
Rich, Fascinating, Delicious, Century-old, Refined
Georgiev / Milkov started 2014, which is the first harvest of both wines. Our idea is to emphasize the Bulgarian, as in this case, Plovdiv region, where all three vineyards are from.
Radostin Milkov and I are graduated oenologists and longtime friends. We have vinified in different places around the world: Austria, Malta, USA, New Zealand, China and last but not least Bulgaria.
We believe in the potential of the local Bulgarian varieties and that is why our joint project started with two of them Mavrud and Rubin, from 2019 we add Cherven / Karlovski / Misket.
The grapes come from the region of the village of Brestovitsa, Plovdiv region, and the vineyards are about 40 years old. The grapes are picked by hand in boxes of 10 kg.
Spontaneous fermentation follows with the addition of selected yeast after the formation of 2-4% alc. degrees. 40% of the wine is aged in 225 l. Bulgarian oak barrels.
