SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 2019
Bernhardt Winery Soleil Wine Club members are invited to this exclusive reception and release party of five old world curated wines from the world renowned Thracian wine region.
Our mission with the Bernhardt Antiquity wine series is to find indigenous varieties as close to the genetic original, and grown in the same terroir as in ancient times. We hope to recreate a shared communal experience of our ancestors such as love, passion, family and celebration through the tasting of these age-old wines.
Thrace is a geographical and historical region in southeastern Europe now split between Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey. One of ancient Thrace’s greatest assets was the Danube River. Europe’s second largest river runs through this region providing direct access to Central Europe.
It was along the fertile Danube River plains of Bulgaria that the ancient Thracians, Greeks and Romans first planted vines from the Middle East. Eventually these V. vinifera vines spread throughout France, Spain and Italy.
History confirms the Danube River valley occupation by barbarians, Greeks and Romans. Great battles lead by Spartacus and epic tails by Alexander the Great, Homer and Aristotle are rich with descriptions of the region and of the great wines in which they celebrated historic victories and romantic tragedies.
Through our Antiquity Curation wine series, we can reconnect with our ancestors. Their ancient stories don’t seem so distant as we swirl and enjoy wines from the same grapes and terroir. Perhaps as the wine rolls across our palates, ancient memories will be unlocked as we share love, family, passions and celebrations.
