'With Enira wine we restore the image of Bulgarian wines in the world' says Count  Stephan von Neipperg

Enira 2008 is offered in the business class of Lufthansa since March, 2012

Bessa Valley project was initiated in 2001. The region around Ognyanovo village was chosen after multiple examinations and a special analysis of the soil, conducted in French laboratories in Bordeaux. The annual production amounts 650 000 bottles, 300 000 of which are intended for export.

Marc Dworkin and Ivaylo Antonov reveled that Asia was the biggest market for Enira. 40 000 bottles are exported to Japan, 30 000 - to China and 20 000 to Hong Kong.

Marc Dworkin, Consultant and Export Manager of “Bessa Valley”, says that “Bulgaria is less known in Asia and Bulgarian wines are easier appreciated. It’s harder in Europe, even though we have a solid breakthrough. We are exporting 20 000 bottles for Sweden, 20 000 to Germany and 20 000 for Great Britain. We are working with Denmark, Belguim and next year we are expecting to enter US market next year. You’ll be surprised to find how many things depend solely on the image of the country. Fortunately, count von Neipperg is a renown wine specialist worldwide and that makes leveraging Enira considerably easier.”

Count Stephan von Neipperg is the owner of six wine cellars in Bordeaux: Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere (Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe), La Mondote (Saint-Emilion), Chateau Clos de l'Oratoire (Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe), Chateau Peyreau (Saint-Emilion Grand Cru), Chateau d'Aiguilhe (Cotes de Castillon), and Clos Marsalette (Pessac-Leognan). The Neipperg family has been growing vines and making wines for 800 years.

“The sole purpose of our wine is delight – it is served with the food or after meals”, Count von Neipperg said. “I am a specialist in red wine making in Bordeaux – we just transferred our know-how to Bulgaria, adapting it for Bulgarian climate. I chose Bulgaria because of its lovely teroir. If we compare Bulgaria to Italy, for example, we will find out that 40-50 years ago Italy had a much worse teroir. Your teroir is far better and good wine is made from a good fruit. The important thing is that afterwards someone shows it at the international market in order to attract investors. This process was initiated in Italy 20 years ago. The popularization of Bulgarian wines will not take more than 15 years. We are trying to sharpen the image of Bulgarian wines again thorugh Enira. I, personally, consider Enira unbeatable on an international scale.

“It is indeed image that matters” Count von Neipperg adds, “Yet, teroir is very important, too. When I was choosing the place, it was teroir and history that drew me to the place – the ancients Thracians used to make wine here! What’s more, you can see how people gradually “escaped” from the teroir and started planting grapes in the lowlands – the process can be observed at the mountain terraces. We are rediscovering teroir and that’s why I am greeting you: “Welcome back to the future!”.

BV by Enira 2008 was ranked with points for a gold medal at the blind tasting during the presentation of The Balkans International Wine Competition on April 09, 2012 in Athens.

Enira 2008 is offered in the business class of Lufthansa since March, 2012.
