Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is probably the best winery in south Bulgaria for visits and tasting. Unlike most others you can just drop in during work hours and there will always be someone to show you around and conduct the tasting. The prices are great for the experience and quality of wine that you taste. The tour is interesting and informative. Buy the higher tasting package as it includes the best wines from Villa Melnik + a wonderful cheese and meats platter. Everyone in the winery is very friendly and this just makes the experience truly great. Last but not least - the view of and from the winery is nothing short of a Tuscan postcard!

Villa Melnik was one of the nicest wineries I have ever visited. They welcomed us very warmly, told us all the history of the wine and the region, and finally we finished with a wonderful tasting of their wines. The people were very nice and kind. I recommend with two hands and two feet ️this place. :)

We were visiting the winery in June, 2021 with a gleam of wine professionals and enthusiasts as a part of our wine tour.
We were absolutely impressed - the winery, technology , the concept, fantastic cave cellars.
Wines were mostly a blast! You can feel how great international grape varieties, like for example, syrah get a character and uniqueness on Bulgarian soils, you may also explore local autochnotic broad leaf Melnik, you can even try Amber wine here. And the hospitality of the owner, Nikolay was above all expectations leaving a remarkable taste after our visit. Must visit places for both tourists and wine lovers.
We will be back)

Came here with my partner for the winery tour and tasting.
We were very happy with the super informative tour done in perfect English by tony.
They are producing around 200,000 bottles are year and have some great varieties. The cellars where super cool, you can even keep the wine you buy here to age in there bottle locker free of charge.

For the wine tasting we had a variety of wines including white, rosé and reds and I have to say they were all very good but the one that I was super impressed with was the hailstorm special it was amazingly complex & has a great back story.

I have to say that this was the best winery that we visited in the region and we will definitely be returning in the summer.

We did the wine tour and tasting. The setting of the winery gives fantastic views over the valley perfectly showing the rows of vines. Nikolai was our tour guide showing how the wine is made and stored, he was fantastic making us so welcome and imparting his knowledge and giving of his time. Oh and the wine is delicious! Thank you so much.

The tour itself around the winery is amazing experience - authentic & at the same time stylish and modern atmosphere. You can feel everything like history, culture, art, nature, traditions & spirit for creation - all these as background and inspiration for great unique wines. The welcome & attitude on side of owners/ staff is great and warm. Beautiful & recommendable destination & stop in Bulgaria :-)

Highly recommend the wine tasting and the walk through the winery!
It was a great experience to follow the wine production process and after to taste the different wines. The cave with the oaks was fantastic.

Loved most the shiraz, but also their orange wine. It was good that after tasting you may buy the wines you just tried, and more.

The trade mark is Applauz and they really deserve applause!

Now I am not a wine drinker so even so I had a wonderful afternoon visiting. We were the first Australians to visit and enjoyed the tour and the information about the winery. The owner was very friendly and it was hard to leave. I'm sure my brother enjoyed the wine. A lovely relaxing afternoon with great company.

Thank you. In fact the only moments of higher satisfaction than from making good wines, are those when we see that people like them and feel happy. Dear guests and friends - we are working for you! Welcome!

Arrived at the winery to be greeted by Eva who was gave us a warm welcome and took us on a tour (in English as our Bulgarian is limited) of the winery before pouring several samples of the different delicious wines for us to taste - some were award winners. This winery is situated on the top of a hill with stunning views overlooking vineyards and off to mountains which surround the area. Definitely recommend a visit.
