Varietal: Chardonnay
Its adaptability to different soils and climates, and malleability in the wine room make Chardonnay one of the most popular and ubiquitous grapes. Responsible for some of the world’s most thrilling white wines wines including Champagne, it is in its homeland of Burgundy with villages such as Chablis, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet that producers craft arguably some of the world’s finest wines. Chardonnay is also synonymous with California, where it can display riper, tropical fruit flavors, rather than the more restrained stone fruit and steely, mineral qualities often associated with its Old World and cool climate counterparts. While there are terrific fresh and vibrant Chardonnays made solely using stainless steel, the grape also knits terrifically well with oak, lending greater depth and weight in the form of a nutty, toasty and somtimes buttery component.

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: Thracian Valley
The temperate continental climate in the area and the favourable distribution of precipitation are good premises for the developed red wine growing in the lowlands of Upper Thrace. The region includes the central part of the lowland, as well as parts of the Sakar mountain. Mavrud, a famous local wine, as well as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscatel and Pamid are grown. The Balkan Mountains serve to block the cold winds blowing from the plains of Russia, and the region to the south of the Balkans, the valley drained by the Maritsa River, has a Mediterranean climate, with mild, rainy winters and warm, dry summers. In the US appellation also approved as "Thracian Valley" region.

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
