We are delighted to recognize Mavrud Ambassador, Krassimira Kodukova.

There are people who enthuse and unite and know how to provoke fruitful actions in achieving causes. Krasi is just such an inspiration. 

In 2019, she first talked about a celebration of Bulgarian wine; today, more than 20 countries around the world celebrate International Mavrud Day.

We sincerely appreciate the energy and love Krasi puts into promoting Mavrud and Bulgarian varieties!
