11 Export Our main advantage on the export market is the quality/price ratio. The Bordeaux wines are much more expensive, the German and Italians as well. In our segment, we are competing with middle-class new World Wines (Australia/Chile/South Africa) and some Languedoc wines. And the image of a World Wine Figure, such as Count Stephan von Neipperg, is a real plus to comfort the quality image of our wines. Enira is the one and only Bulgarian wine that can be bought at Harrods, London.

The mouth is more woody also, the tannins are long and thin. You will also enjoy an ending with toasted bread flavors.
