I hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial weekend


I drank at every vine.
The last was like the first.
I came upon no wine
So wonderful as thirst.

I gnawed at every root.
I ate of every plant.
I came upon no fruit
So wonderful as want.

Feed the grape and bean
To the vintner and monger:
I will lie down lean
With my thirst and my hunger.

10 years of trying

After 10 years of trying, I finally sold a case of Bulgarian wine to Wine Impressions, one of the top wine stores in San Francisco - they liked the entire 2009 vintage from Targovishte and took only the Riesling for now. Petko Mateev should be very proud, as the Riesling is his and my favorite from Targovishte.

2009 VINI Sauvignon Blanc now available in the US

The 2008 vintage was reviewed by the Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago:

Very pale straw hue. Subdued, slightly earthy nose. A crisp entry leads a medium-bodied palate with subtle citrus and lemongrass flavors. Shows a touch of sweetness. Crisp, melony finish.

"2009 WVWC Best Value Bulgarian White"
