Grape growing and wine production have a long history in Bulgaria, dating back to the times of the Thracians. There is evidence of Bulgarian winemaking since 4000 B.C. Wine is, together with beer and grape rakia, among the most popular alcoholic beverages in the country.
Bulgaria was the world’s fourth-largest wine exporter in the 1980s, and most of the production was in bulk and destinated to the USSR, but the industry starts to decline when During 1985–87, Mikhail Gorbachev carried out an anti-alcohol campaign with partial prohibition, colloquially known as the “dry law”. Prices of vodka, wine, and beer were raised, and their sales were restricted in amount and time of day.
That and the later fall of the USSR made that in Bulgaria the land planted with grape was reduced dramatically, but during the last years, wine production is growing again with new grapes been planted and increase in the quality standards. In its 25-century history, the town of Pomorie (which until 1934 was named Anhialo) has a tradition in wine-making since the first millennium BC, with Anhialo included in the so-called. Pontic wine-growing region.
Legends say that wines from Pomorie were served at the royal tables of ancient Troy, and in the Middle Ages enjoyed the connoisseurs of wine from Genoa and Venice. It is believed that the varieties grown here from time immemorial Dimyat and Red Misket are of local origin.
