Wines of Thrace

Mavrud

Considered to date back to Ancient Thrace times, Mavrud is a red wine grape which for centuries has been exclusively grown in the region of the ancient Filippopolis, north of the Rhodoppe Mountains. This variety is normally used for making dark wines with deep color and soft taste.  Its cultivation is difficult and requires special dedication. However, the unique quality of the wine made of Mavrud is worth the effort!
