The past 2020, marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, was a good yet difficult year for Bulgarian vine growers and wine makers. It was also quite dry, which created conditions for a good grape harvest. This was summarized for BTA by Prof. Ivan Pachev - director of the only Institute of Viticulture and Enology in Bulgaria. 

In the different regions of Bulgaria the yields of wine grape varieties varied from 600 kg to 900 kg per decare, and for dessert grape varieties - between a tonne and a tonne and a half per decare. 

The resulting wines have very good qualities, but are difficult to sell in a pandemic.
