Kukeri Wines...

In name and in symbol, the Kukeri Wines faithfully represents an ancient Bulgarian tradition.
"Kukeri" is a pagan ritual held in honor to Dionysus, the god associated with wine, fertility, and rebirth. The ritual is performed by men dressed in colorful hand-made costumes, wearing bold and scary masks, and large bells (chanove) that are tied around their waists. The masks symbolize the good and the bad, which co-exist in our world.
Our handcrafted wines represent all the great things that is happening to us every day!

The Story...

In a true tradition, the Kukeri wine label explodes with colors. Each of these vibrant colors has their symbolic meaning; Red symbolizes the sun and fire and the fertility of nature; Black is the color for Mother Earth; White is the symbol of water and light. The Kukers dance around to scare away the evil spirits, to celebrate the beginning of the spring and express their wishes for a good harvest, good health, land fertility, and happiness. For the design of our wine label we used an original artwork crafted by one of the well-known Bulgarian artist Anatoly Stankulov.

Best of Appellation ...

Double Gold Winner

Evaluation Notes: Very dark ruby color. Aromatically integrated, with reserved cedar, tobacco and chocolate aromas with no jamminess, sure to improve for decades but drinkable now. Much more refined than standard issue Napa Cab, and blissfully restrained in its alcohol and oak. It substantial tannin is wonderfully dense, fine and plush, and its origin in volcanic soils explains its finishing long and energetic with a rich kiss of cassis. (14.5% alc)

A juicy red with dried-berry and plum aromas and flavors. Full body and a savory finish. Drink in 2020. Needs time to mellow.
