2010 - Poor Grapes For Wine But Good For Rakia

A green wine grape.
Looks like the grape harvest in Bulgaria, as expected this year, is a poor one. Wine will suffer but rakia is unaffected to a degree. The chances are that even more rakia will be made this year as an outcome.

Bulgaria’s 2010 wine year will be a memorable one for all the wrong reasons, it seems, with a harvest yielding grapes of poorer quality than last year, and domestic sales and exports down.

Mass-circulation daily 24 Chassa said that the quality of this year’s grapes was significantly poorer than those of 2009, making them more appropriate for rakiya (grape brandy) than turning into wine.
