Wine cellar Borovitsa is located near the village of the same name nestled among the Belogradchishki rocks. The northwestern region is extremely fertile for growing vines and the wines have a distinct terroir character.
The winery’s own vineyards are located under the rocks on a red sandy-stone soil and the grapes are transformed into extremely limited series of wines bearing the terroir of this region.
The day temperatures are high while the night ones are relatively low which contributes to the desired balance in the wines.
The story behind the creation of this wine oasis is impressive especially when told by the owner and oenologist Adriana Srebrinova. Together with her partner Ognyan Tsvetanov, an oenologist with many years of experience and a doctorate in winemaking, in 2005 they decided to buy an old abandoned cellar and plant vineyards. Unfortunately after the passing of Ognyan Adriana is left alone in this venture but continues to follow their philosophy and create exceptional wines that are found in the best restaurants around the world to this very day.
The range of styles in the winery is rich – white, rose, red, naturally sparkling and the very popular at the moment orange wines. Extremely limited series of terroir wines that can only be found in restaurants and specialized wine shops and bars.
In order to enjoy the wines to the maximum, to understand their philosophy and to feel the love and passion of their creators we recommend you visit the cellar personally. Get inspired by the unique landscape, meet Adriana and get to know more about the land that birthed such wines.

The Chiprovtsi Monastery is located at the foot of Yazova Mountain, 6 km from Chiprovtsi and 30 km from Montana. Access to it is extremely easy as you can drive right up to the monastery itself. Built in the 10th century by the Bulgarian Catholics, a total of six fires and destructions are recorded in the annals of the monastery.
Belogradchik rocks are located near the town of Belogradchik. They represent rock groups and single rocks with unique shapes. They are natural formations, and in some places they are over 200 metres high. The rocks are characterised by their red colour which is a result of the iron compounds in them. More than 100 caves are hidden among the bizarre formations.
The formation of the cave Magura began about 15 million years ago. It is one of the largest caves in Bulgaria with the total length of the discovered galleries totalling to about 2,500 metres. Protected by UNESCO as a natural landmark, the cave resembles an underground cathedral and is one of the brightest tourist attractions in Eastern Europe. What makes it truly unique are the extremely well-preserved ancient drawings that have no analogues not only in Bulgaria.
