The time has come to integrate the Bulgarian Wine industry with California and Australia.

The grape seeds should be placed in seed banks for future generations to articulate the true Thracian Taste for future generations.

California and Australia will receive one great surprise to the wonders of Thracian Spirits of Bulgaria. Let us not forget the sounds and wonders of the evenings at Rila listening to the winds blowing off the mountain peaks.

My Bulgarian maiden awaits me in my Thracian Bath with the flowing wine of Bulgaria.

This would be a great marketing pitch for consumers in California and Australia.
