Quality factors:

    1. Climate and Soil
The best latitude for growing high quality grapes is between 35 and 50 N and 30 and 50 S. Situated between approximately 41 and 44 N on the Balkan peninsula, Bulgaria lies at the heart of the northern wine growing belt.

    2. Human factor
Millennia-old winemaking tradition enriched by the latest technological achievements yields superb quality wines. Further, all wines produced in Bulgaria are meticulously controlled by an independent body, i.e. the Central Regulating Commission. The main characteristics of this control are as follows:

Limiting Production

Maximum production is 45,5 Hl/ha, 6,500kg./ha (5,799 lb./acre) and 63 Hl/ha, 9,000 kg/ha (8,030 lb./acre) for red grapes and white grapes respectively.

Wine Rating and Wine Certification

The wine produced in Bulgaria is divided into three categories:


1) Standard Quality;
2) High Quality;
3) Special ( comprising dessert wines and fortified wines ).

The High Quality category is divided into three sub-categories:


1) Wines without Declared Geographical Origin but of declared variety or brand name;
2) Wines of Declared Geographical Origin ( DGO );
3) Wines of Controlled Name of Origin ( CNO ), equivalent to AOC in France.

Wines of Controlled Name of Origin must be tasted by the National Tasting Committee appointed by the Minister of Agriculture before being awarded Controlled status.

As well as having a passport with information about the region, soil, climatic conditions, vinification, varieties, each wine must hold an evaluation from three consecutive vintages proving consistent quality. A member of the National Tasting Committee is present at harvest. Prior to bottling, after tasting the wines, the Committee issues a Certificate of Approval.

CNO wines have distinct characters and features based on the specific natural conditions and production traditions of the particular region. The following conditions must be respected:


1) The grapes for the wine have to originate from a defined geographical micro-region with specific and uniform soil and climatic conditions.
2) The wines must be produced from grape varieties approved for the region.
3)  Both viticulture and vinification must adhere to strict rules.
4) The levels of alcohol, acidity and sugar must figure within strict boundaries. The wines are organoleptically and chemically tested.


CNO wines can be called Reserves if the vintage is superior to average and the wine has been aged in oak barrels for at least three years for white wines and four years for red wines.

Grand Reserves are wines produced from exceptional harvests only. Aged for at least two years in barrel and three years in bottle, these wines can not leave the winery until the sixth year after harvest.

Klimtech's selection encompasses high quality vintage wine ( DGO wines and CNO wines ) only.
