LOGODAJ WINERY

 

 It was set up in 1994 by 3 friends in a village with the same name, a stone throw from the Macedonian border in South-West Bulgaria. 

     While making high quality wines from international grape varieties the winery is also esteemed highly  for producing wines from the local indigenous grape varieties Broad Leaved Melnik Vine and Early Ripening Melnik, also known as Melnik 55. The former is believed to have been planted in the area since Roman times while the latter was created in the sixties by crossing the Broad Leaved Melnik Vine with the French grape variety Valdiguie, originally planted in the Languedoc-Roussillon area. 

     Logodaj has always striven to produce high quality characterful and delicious wines that are food friendly and do not break the bank. Until vintage 2010 the task has been laid upon the leading expert on local grape varieties, wine-maker Stoicho Stoev. From 2011 the Italian consultant Riccardo Cotarella and his team have taken over, making the wines more delicate and polished. The winery has won various awards from international wine shows and competitions with the most recent being a red trophy for their Melnik 55 2012 at the International Balkan Wine Competition in 2014. They are also the first producer of sparkling Melnik Brut and Brut Rose made from 100% Broad Leaved Melnik Vine using the traditional method. The ranges of Nobile and Hypnose are aged in new French Oak barrels while the Logodaj series are non-oaked wines where the aim is to achieve pure varietal fruit aromas.
