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.

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!

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.
