Welcome to our traditional winery “Villa Melnik”!
Our roots are in Melnik and our wine is true to its origin. Melnik is a symbol of tradition, courage and destiny. Melnik is wine. We have always been connected with the land and we have its identity encoded in us.
Wine Cellar Villa Melnik is a family-owned producer of brave wines from indigenous and international grapes with a distinct Melnik character. We own 30 hectares of vineyards near the town of Melnik and a modern winery, which is open for visitors every day.
At Villa Melnik, we believe in the potential of the local grape varieties. We create brave blends between rare Bulgarian grapes and international grapes, and innovate continuously. We look for the true expression of the Melnik terroir in each of our wines.

Wine training for wine enthusiasts and industry professionals
From wine tasting and wine-and-food-pairing classes to practical lessons in blending wine and pruning the vines, we can teach you any wine-related skill. Let us know what you are interested in, and we can organize a fun class or a very serious lesson for you.
Participation in the winegrowing processes:
Become part of the winemaking process by volunteering to participate in pruning the vines or harvesting the ripe grapes, depending on the season. This is the best way to immerse yourselves in an authentic Melnik experience while enjoying the fresh air and beautiful scenery in the vineyards. During harvest season, you have the chance to purchase fresh ripe dessert grapes and freshly squeezed grape juice.
