Tsarev Brod

The meeting of old grape varieties with modern winemaking

Between the two old capitals of Bulgaria – Pliska and Veliki Preslav, is nestled the picturesque Shumen village of Tsarev Brod, whose name bears our winery. In the immediate vicinity is the only rock bas-relief in Europe, a UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Madara Horseman.

The idea for our own winery was born in 2001, when Ivan Ivanov, together with his family, planted the first acres of grape vines in the village of the same name Tsarev Brod. The winery was built in 2015, a full 14 years after the first 27 hectares of vineyards were planted.The winery is located right next to the vineyard, so we achieve perfection in quality by processing the directly picked fruit.

This part of Bulgaria has been called “The home of white wine varieties”. The variety of styles and the quality of the wines produced here make it a true kingdom of these grape varieties.

Terroir: In the embrace of the vineyards

In the world of wine, terroir is a concept of the relationship between land, vine and man. The land on which the vines are grown is believed to confer unique qualities unique to the region. It is no coincidence that the best wines with their own character bear the name of the place or vineyard they originate.

Good terroir is strictly limited, and when paired with the right grape variety, truly supreme wines are produced. In our vineyards, the local climate conditions are one of the keys to the success of the white varieties.

The wide range of temperatures – warm days and cold nights, the breeze from the winds due to the short distance to the coast of around 80 km, the fewer hours of sunshine – approximately 3 500 hours a year – and the altitude of 250 m above sea level, determine the prosperity of fresh and aromatic white and early ripening red varieties.
