He started his oenological career in 2007 and has been gathering experience in large and smaller companies for 16 years. These years devoted to winemaking met him with different people and characters, which built his own management skills and visions for the development of winemaking.
2013 was a turning point for him - he started a new challenge in his career development by accepting the offer to become part of the team of one of the first producers of certified organic wine in Bulgaria. This gives him the opportunity to experiment - mainly with local, endemic varieties, but also with international ones (over 26 species), which broadens his knowledge and outlook.
At Aya Estate Vineyards, he was drawn to the idea of the importance of indigenous varieties, their preservation and the return of interest to them on the international wine scene. Kiril sees winemaking not just as a job, but as something one creates to bring pleasure and delight to the senses. Kiril has been through the ringer with the wine he makes and is not at all inclined to put up with mediocrity, because he believes that his product represents not only him, but also his country.
