In 2002 Edoardo Miroglio, a well known Italian producer of textile products and wines, discovered in the Thracian region of Bulgaria the perfect soil and climatic conditions for production of quality wines. After elaborate analyses and soil tests in the micro-region of Elenovo village, he found that the terroir of Elenovo is unique for Bulgaria and is equally good for cultivating both red and white grape varieties. As a result of this, he decided to establish there one of the best modern wineries in the region. So far, almost 22 million euros have been invested in Edoardo Miroglio wine cellar. The winery released its first production in October 2005. A team of Italian and Bulgarian specialists, headed by the worldwide recognized oenologist, Mr Marco Monchiero, manages the whole process. During the period 2004-2008, the total number of workers engaged in the creation and cultivation of the vineyards in the region of Elenovo village numbered 130. During the harvest, over 200 people are employed. The winery itself is an intriguing combination of ancient-looking exterior naturally blending with the environment, and modern technologies and state-of-the-art equipment. The cellar is surrounded by vineyards spreading on rolling hills, a natural lake and green lawns, which provide excellent conditions for development of wine-tourism. A luxury guest house with a restaurant and a tasting room facilitates this feature and contributes to the memorable impressions from the winery. The internal design and furnishing of the guest house represent a unique symbiosis of traditional Bulgarian and antique Italian styles. As of the present moment, on the extremely suitable soil of Elenovo, over 210 hectares of vineyards of elite French and Bulgarian grape varieties have been planted. Some of the varieties cultivated by Edoardo Miroglio wine cellar are: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Muscat Ottonel, Gewurz Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Mavrud, Rubin, and Melnik 55. The annual production capacity of Edoardo Miroglio Wine Cellar is approximately 1 million liters of wine. The technological cycle encompasses all technological operations - from primary grape processing to wine bottling. The main equipment of Edoardo Miroglio wine cellar has been supplied by leading Italian and French producers of winemaking equipment and technology. The winery is equipped also with Bulgarian-made stainless steel vinification tanks “Rodina”, which are widely used in many European countries. The management and quality control of the production is performed by a state-of-the-art laboratory. The process of ageing and maturing takes place in high-quality French oak barrels, which are essential to the style of the wines produced. The winery is specialized in the production of quality white, rosé and red wines, as well as sparkling wine (Classis Method) – white and rosé. The three major brands produced by the winery are: EDOARDO MIROGLIO (premium brand), SANT’ ILIA and SAINT ILIA ESTATE (commercial brands). EM (Edoardo Miroglio) is the premium brand and it is mostly distributed in selected hotels and restaurants, as well as specialized wine stores, while Sant’Ilia and Saint Ilia Estate are commercial brands designated for the domestic and export markets. – Description from AlexJelena
