July Morning in the mountains – with Villa Melnik winery

Тази статия може да я прочетете и на: bgБългарски

We just came back from Estonia a few hours ago and guess what is one of the things in Bulgaria we appreciate the most – there are nights in the summer! In the North now is the season of the so-called white nights, which means that in never actually gets completely dark in the summer. But how you can enjoy a beautiful day if there is no night? We really appreciated the beautiful summer nights in Bulgaria and we will tell you about one such night now.

Here in our country we have a very popular tradition – the July Morning. It usually means greeting the first morning of July under the sound of rock music on a romantic place like the seaside or mountain. It is always fun and romantic to gather with friends and other enthusiasts and spend a night awake outdoors. Then you all greet the beautiful sunrise.

One of the traditional places to do this in Bulgaria recently are the hills around Melnik, and particularly the hill above the vineyards of Villa Melnik winery near Harsovo village. This year the owners of the winery are inviting us again to join them for July Morning and share this amazing emotion with them. If you wonder why there – because the hill above their vineyards is one of the most beautiful places in the area, offering 360-degrees panorama to the vineyards and the surrounding mountains and sand pyramids.

July Morning at Villa Melnik – what to expect?

You would definitely want to follow the event on Facebook but we decided to contact directly the owners of the winery to ask what exactly will be happening.

So here is the plan. The winery will be working as regular during the day, welcoming guests for tours and tastings. After 6-7 pm everybody will go up to the panoramic hill above the cellar. There you can place your tents, bankets or sleeping bags. In the evening will be played board games, football, frisby, badminton and many other games. You can come by car, trailer, bike or whatever transport you like. There is plenty of parking space for everyone.

Electricity, toilets and showers are also available on site so you will feel as comfortable as in a hotel, just more romantic. Because camping does not mean feeling uncomfortable.

Music, BBQ and wine

Dinner options will also be available so you won’t need to bring your own food and drinks if you don’t want to. Grill and salads will be made and sold on side, as well as various wines, of course. Sangria will be available for everyone, too. However, if you want to bring something different from that, feel free to bring it.

The whole night will pass under the sound of rock music and local bands. And if you have a talent and want to sing or play your instrument – the floor will be available, too! Popcorn and sweet delights will greet you in the morning so the atmosphere promises to be unforgettable.
