2021 Odessos Kavarna Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc


The winemaking process at Odessos is a labour of love, starting with hand-picked grapes transported in small boxes to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.

At the winery, the grapes are sorted by hand and crushed in small, open-top fermenters. They then enjoy a 7-day cold soak before fermentation begins naturally, maintained at a comfortable 20-22°C. Gentle extraction is achieved through careful pumping over, plunging, and pigeage.

Post-fermentation, the young wine rests in Bulgarian oak barrels for 8 months, followed by another 8 months in stainless steel tanks, allowing the oak aromas to beautifully integrate. All wines are crafted with minimal intervention, so a fine sediment might make an appearance.

Tasting Note: Expect a medium intensity, bright ruby hue that catches the eye. This Cabernet Franc boasts typical herbal aromas of peppers, enriched with cherry, blackcurrant, and a hint of cocoa. An elegant, medium body, that's fresh and juicy. There's a delightful balance between density and acidity, with distinctive notes of ripe cherries, chocolate, and light spices. The finish is impressively long and fresh.

Odessos Urban Winery

Odessos, one of Bulgaria's new wave of wineries, is located in the vibrant city of Varna on the Black Sea coast. Established in 2016 by brothers Georgi and Vladislav Vankov, Odessos boasts a groundbreaking, modern concept that sets it apart in the wine industry. Drawing on their extensive experience gained at prestigious wineries in Australia, New Zealand, and Chile, the Vankov brothers envisioned creating one of Bulgaria's first urban wineries.

Winemaking runs deep in the Vankov family, and Odessos is a natural continuation of this legacy. The brothers' global experience taught them that the most critical element for exceptional wine is its terroir. This insight inspired their winery's motto and philosophy: to pursue and present their unique interpretation of the Northern Black Sea region.
