Beyond the Label
Juicy, fresh, fruity and ripe, with a hint of spice
Ivana's Odiseya has a story that starts in the 1900s. Her husband's family had a winery in SW Bulgaria and, as early as 1907, it was winning Golds in London. Fast forward to 1945, Russian tanks rolled in and the family lost winery and land. They never gave up hope of regaining their property and once more making award winning wines. In 1989, state monopoly ceased, private ownership returned and many wineries fell into disrepair, including one on the Thracian Plains, close to the Rhodope Mountains. Yuli and Ivana came across it and dreamed of restoring the cellar to its former glory. The going's been tough, but Yuli persevered in the vineyards and Ivana learnt winemaking. Now they’re reaping success with, amongst others, this fruity red.
"Lovely supple easy fruit. An 'any time will suit' sort of red"
