Wine cellar Sopot was established in October 2013. It is located at 510 m above sea level in the heart of the Rose Valley south of the city of Sopot. Its location is also considered one of the most favorable climatic zones for viticulture in Bulgaria between Stara Planina and Sredna Gora in the Sub-Balkan region.
In ancient times the boundaries of the three lands – Sopot, Karavelovo and the village of Pavlikyan (which disappeared in 1688 and its land now belongs to the village of Dabene) met right where the cellar stands today. The place where these three lands met was marked by a upright stone under the base of which charcoal and soot were buried so that the spot would be visible even if the stone were removed or moved elsewhere. All this was destroyed in the 1960s when the land was cooperative, the signs were ploughed up and removed and only the names of the localities remained to remind us of the past. This is how the locality acquired its name “Tragata” which is the now obsolete word meaning mark, track or trace.
