Midalidare's brand of the same name honours the nature and climate conditions typical of the village of Mogilovo. Part of the company's wine philosophy is to grow only grape varieties suitable for the winery's unique terroir. The Midalidare brand presents the remarkable features of the area in combination with the varietal characteristics of the grapes. Midalidare are terroir wines expressing the specifics of the varieties, individually or in blend. The charm of this series is visually supported by the beautiful monochrome wine labels: each varietal or blended wine has its own unique colour.


The white colour represents a classic white Bordeaux blend – Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

Winemaking notes

The harvest for Midalidare Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon takes place in the early mornings. Machine and hand-picked grapes are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

After immediate 24-hour cooling the grapes are carefully double sorted by hand. At first the whole clusters are sorted and after being destemmed, the second sorting of the grapes is carried out. The finest selection of grapes are sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak takes place in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are than strained and delicately pressed into stainless steel vats. Clarification for a few days preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for certain period, batonnage is carried out if necessary Filtration, clarification, blending and bottling complete the winemaking process.
