It strives to highlight the remarkable harmony between tradition and innovation that drives modern Bulgarian winemaking, as well as showcase the quality and stylistic diversity of Bulgarian wines. Our goal is to establish the day as one of the most significant celebrations of Bulgarian wine, to further boost the country’s wine image, to provide information and guide consumers through the complexities of Bulgarian wine.

Bulgaria’s winemaking tradition can be traced back to antiquity. Bulgaria has one of the most ancient wine histories in the world. This is the reason why we chose the emblematic authentic Bulgarian grape variety, Mavrud, as our symbol for the day. The emphasis on Mavrud aims to present the style as well as its diversity, quality and modern feel, which can now be observed in many Bulgarian wines, regardless of their variety.
