The Vineyards and region:

The winery is located at the heart of Struma river valley, in Strumyani village, 12 km away from the town of Sandanski, South Western Bulgaria. The family winery produces artisanal wines with individual character, expressing the family values, love and passion for wine. Vineyards are cultivated in a bio-friendly manner by applying “natural farming” and maintaining an attitude of deep respect towards land and nature.

Damynov’s vineyards are located in ecologically clean region characterized by the longest year-round sunshine period in Bulgaria, at 300 m altitude, with the majority of plots facing south. This creates perfect conditions for the cultivation of the signature grape varieties - Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and the unique and ancient Broad Leaved Melnik vine, typical only for this region.

The Damyanovs believe that quality wine is produced from quality grapes and follow consequently a strict philosophy of “less is more”. All grape-growing processes are meticulously controlled with an accent on quality instead of quantity.

By using mostly manual labor to take care of the vineyards, they make sure that each vine receives the necessary and specific care and attention needed. As a result, the grapes are of highest quality and possess excellent wine specifications. Read more
