Our Vineyards

Our Philosophy is “winemaking starts at the vineyard”. Owing to this philosophy we have chosen three plots that are the best in the region to grow wines Terziysko, Ognen and Devetak. Each of these vineyards have their own characteristic and provide its own distinctiveness to its wines


Located on the eastern slopes of the Terziyski Hill at an altitude of 184 to 225 metres the soil in this vineyard is leached, maroon forest soil. Region sees a mild winter and spring rains but mostly has warm sunshine till late autumn days. Under these conditions growing grapes for red wine grape is the best and we have chosen Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir.


This vineyard is situated on southwest of the Hisar Hill with small hills and hollows. The vineyard is at an altitude of 180 to 205 metres and has soil composition that has volcanic and sedimentary rocks which is mixed with sand-and-clay soil which enables us to grow both red and white wine grape varieties. We have selected a palette of traditional and modern varieties, including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Viognier, Muscat Petits Grains, and Muscat Ottonel.


Terziysko vineyard is located on the eastern slopes of the Terziyski Hill at an average altitude of 350 metres. The soil here is maroon forest soil, and has diverse and rich structure. Rainfall in this region is good for ripening of the grapes. Also, the cooler climate provides suitable condition for growing white wine grape varieties. We have selected Rhine Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Muscat Ottonel and Black Muscat.
