Winery Minkovi Brothers is located in close proximity to the village of Venets near the town of Karnobat, 65 km west of Burgas. Built on a picturesque hill among the wonderful vineyards, the winery boasts classic retro architecture and interior design.
It is located in the place where the oldest and best vineyards in the Karnobat region used to be and revives the glory of the famous winemakers, the Minkovi brothers, who at the end of the 19th century brought to the country the most prestigious international wine exhibition award of that time .
The proximity to the Black Sea to the east and the Aegean sea to the south contribute to the favourable climate of the region. The breeze during the day and during the night meet with two local windflows – Gornyakat and Dolnyakat (roughly translating to “The Upper and The Lower”). As a result of these influences winters in the valley are milder, autumns are long and warm, springs are cool, and summers are not hot.
Located in the souther foothills of Stara Planina (or Balkana as it is also known) the winery’s vineyards which are over 460 ha have excellent soil and climate conditions for growing prestigious grape varieties of high quality.
Winery Minkov Brothers has a restaurant, wine tasting room, wine shop, a small museum and two underground tunnels measuring 160 m in length where their wines are aged.
The small museum exposition is dedicated to the wine family from the 19th century and contains authentic objects once owned by the Minkov family.
It is always advisable that you make a reservation prior visiting a winery in Bulgaria!
