Varietal: Gamza
The bunch is large, cylindrical-conical and compact. The grapes are dark-blue to bluish-black and their skins are thin and frail. Gamza is a late-ripening variety – it ripens at the end of September or beginning of October. However, in the Vidin area in north-western Bulgaria, the grapes achieve technological maturity earlier – around September – because the accumulation of sugar is more intense. In general, Gamza thrives best at windy hills with rich soils. Because of the thin skin of the grapes, they are prone to developing fungi such as grey mold. For instance, if the autumn is quite humid, the grapes tend to get this disease. Thus, Gamza requires a warm and dry autumn in order for the wines to be of good quality. Gamza is not particularly resilient to low winter temperatures, although it prefers cooler climates which is the reason why it is mostly cultivated in northern Bulgaria.

Country: Bulgaria
Although Bulgaria has been practising viticulture for more than three millenia its current industry is no more than 100 years old, and in that time, due to the rise and fall of communism, has experienced a rollercoaster of changes. At the start of the 20th century small holdingers accounted for the major share of the market, pooling thier resorces in the form of co-operatives. In 1947 the newly formed communist government established Vinprom, a state run organisation with the pervue to oversee all the countries production of wine and spirits. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were planted instead indigenous varities in colossal mechanized vineyards. Thanks to Pepsi's business interests in the country, much of Bulgaria's modern wine production was heavily influenced by UC Davis's school of viticulture. So sucessful were exports that Bulgaria became Britiain's fourth largest supplier of red wine, however in the late 1980s production almost came to a standstill due to Gorbachev's anti alcohol campaign which resulted in the uprooting of thousands of acres of vineyards. Since the fall of communism, and with the help of international investment, the industry has slowly recovered. Recently a number of boutique wineries have popped up across the country succesfully making quality wine.

Region: Danube Plain
The Danubian Plain is a Bulgarian wine region located in the hilly northern parts of the country. The vines of this wine region are planted on the steep valley slopes of the mountains, along the course of the meandering Danube River. Compared to other wine regions of Bulgaria, the Danubian Plains remain relatively underdeveloped. This means that the region is quiet in terms of tourism and tourist attractions but it is still certainly worth visiting. What the Danubian Plains lacks in terms of attractions it more than makes up for in terms of historical artifacts, ancient fortresses, and medieval castles.
