This is a definite must for wine-lovers! We enjoyed a very informative guided tour of the winery followed by a delicious tasting of 6 varieties of wines set against the splendid Tuscan-like view.

Enlightening experience
Mar 2021 • Couples
Came here with my partner for the winery tour and tasting.
We were very happy with the super informative tour done in perfect English by tony.
They are producing around 200,000 bottles are year and have some great varieties. The cellars where super cool, you can even keep the wine you buy here to age in there bottle locker free of charge.

For the wine tasting we had a variety of wines including white, rosé and reds and I have to say they were all very good but the one that I was super impressed with was the hailstorm special it was amazingly complex & has a great back story.

I have to say that this was the best winery that we visited in the region and we will definitely be returning in the summer.

Fantastic

Exceptional winery, the 39th best in the world for 2020. It's a great place to visit if you're nearby Melnik. Here you can see the technology behind making great wine. There's a hospitable guide who'll walk you around the winery and share its history and technology. You can do wine tasting. The red wine is plain fantastic. I highly recommend trying out the Applauz selection (their high-end class) and especially Shiroka or the 1300.

One of the best wineries for tasting!
Sep 2020 • Couples
This is probably the best winery in south Bulgaria for visits and tasting. Unlike most others you can just drop in during work hours and there will always be someone to show you around and conduct the tasting. The prices are great for the experience and quality of wine that you taste. The tour is interesting and informative. Buy the higher tasting package as it includes the best wines from Villa Melnik + a wonderful cheese and meats platter. Everyone in the winery is very friendly and this just makes the experience truly great. Last but not least - the view of and from the winery is nothing short of a Tuscan postcard!

The perfect day at Vila Melnik
Aug 2020 • Solo
For a wine lover or even a nature lover , a trip to Vila Melnik is well, magical !
One of the most breathtaking settings you will encounter anywhere in the world.
Leave time to just hang around and stare !!!!
The vineyards are lush .Well taken care of ,vines with many local and international varietals .
The climate allows for healthy vines , producing high quality grapes .
The staff is very professional and discriminative in their work , hence the world class wines of international and local grape varietals.
I just had the perfect day at Vila Melnik !!!!
In the mourning I picked grapes with the crew , a totally civilized affair !
Then the owner Mrs.Zikatanova and the winemaker Mr. Mikov spend time with me , helping me create the begining of a perfect wine collection !
I already had my heart set on some bottles , but without their help and care I would have not have several dozens now resting happily in the library of the cellar.
Both of them are so excidingly nice , absolut pleasure to work with.
It just both genuinely cared about my collection.
To top this I was invited to a 5 star lunch !!!
Really , here people eat local and organic !
And now for the more emotional part !
Yes , this are wines to move you !
Of course they are solid, balanced , nuanced.
They tell the sweeping story of on old culture and unforgettable nature.
But somehow tasting you don't think of it.
It's just, well the sense and the emotion takes over .
These are warm , sexy , even sensual wines.
You are instantly dreaming, you become nostalgic , you fall in love .
It happen to me.
Let it happen to you.

Great experience
Jun 2020 • Family
The tour itself around the winery is amazing experience - authentic & at the same time stylish and modern atmosphere. You can feel everything like history, culture, art, nature, traditions & spirit for creation - all these as background and inspiration for great unique wines. The welcome & attitude on side of owners/ staff is great and warm. Beautiful & recommendable destination & stop in Bulgaria :-)

An amazing experience, great wines, the local red varieties are exposed perfectly and it’s a great way to get familiar with them. The whole Villa Melnik Family is amazing, the wine tours and tastings are something You should not miss if in the Melnik Region.
