Domain Menada is located in Stara Zagora - one of the oldest cities in Bulgaria, heir of the ancient Augusta Trayana. The town is situated in the center of Southern Bulgaria, at the footstep of the Sredna Gora mountain range.
The winery owns over 426 hectares of vineyards.
The landscape of the region is tilted, inclined to the south. The altitude is 170 to 260 meters above sea level.
The climate is temperate continental. A specific characteristic of the region is that temperatures warm up very quickly in spring and cool down much later in autumn. A unique advantage here is the local air currents, which prevent the cold weather from lingering too long during the winter months. The air temperature allows for the accumulation of enough sugar and acids to give harmony and softness to the wine.
Maroon wood soil, a mixture of clay and sand, deluvial rocky and alluvial-deluvially slightly sandy and clayish. The climate and soils are particularly suited to the grape varieties grown in the region and give the wine the necessary sweetness and density.
Our prime vineyards are located in the quaint villages of Elhovo and Mogilovo - about 18 km from the town of Stara Zagora. The grape varieties are carefully selected with the characteristics of the region in mind. We are proud of the quality of our white varietals Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Sémillon, Muscadelle and Viognier. Our red varietals include some fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
