28 Feb Stars of the BNT TV Series “The Grapes of Guilt” (“Vina”) visit Villa Melnik for Trifon Zarezan 2023
Trifon Zarezan at Villa Melnik on 18.02.2023 was epic!
Over 1500 people visited the winery during the Open Doors Days in Melnik 2023 weekend, from February 17th to 19th, 2023. We drank over 300 liters of wine in front of the winery, ate over 2000 meatballs and 1500 kebabs. We danced to dozens of songs, took hundreds of selfies, and created countless new wine friendships!
We thank all the wine lovers who shared their joy with us!
