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.
