Burgozone is a boutique family winery in Northwest Bulgaria situated near the town of Oryahovo on the banks of the river Danube overlooking Esperanto island. The winery takes its name after the Roman fortress Burgozone built on the ancient Roman road Via Istrum. Through the centuries the region has been celebrated as one of the main wine regions of Bulgaria.
All of Burgozone’s wines are produced from their own 100 hectares of grapes with proven potential to grow grapes of the highest quality. The vineyards are located in a zone with moderate continental climate influenced by the rivern Danube with warm days and cool nights.
They grow the following varieties: Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Cabernet Franc, Marcellin, Syrah, Egiodola, Merlot as well as 2 local varieties – Gamza (red) and Tamyanka (white).
All the wines are made from handpicked and sorted grapes and are bottled on site to highlight the unique terroir. They carefully apply “canopy management” and “green pruning” techniques to limit yields. They practice “sustainable viticulture”, which together with environmental responsibility are one of their priorities.
Chateau Burgozone has wine tasting rooms with a capacity of 50 people. A beautiful summer hut is located among the vineyards, offering an amazing view of the river Danube. The enoteca is open for group visit during the winter but only if you have booked in advance.
They welcome tourists during their opening hours but if you wish to pay them a visit furing the weekend you need to make a reservation and pay extra.
