Zlaten Rozhen is one of the emblematic wineries in Melnik region Its history begins in 2009. with the purchase of a few small vineyards. The owners Marusia and Teodor share the first vintages only with friends. They fall in love with the taste of the melnik wines and with the beauty of the Struma Valley. They opened a small boutique family hotel in the village of Rozhen, bought more vineyards and soon began the construction of a modern wine cellar. In 2014 first wines were botteled in the new winery in Kapatovo village, and in 2018 a wine tasting room which receives tourists all year round was opened.
With small but precise steps, as like in the wine making process, Osikovski family reach the point when they can enjoy the modern wine making facilities, well established vineyards and a great team. Zlaten Rozhen wines are made with respect to the nature and in harmony with the local terroir. Their aim is to present Bulgaria na Struma Valley region in the best possible way.
Today the own vineyards of Zlaten Rozhen are 800 DKA divided in two plots. In the village of Kapatovo are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Melnishki Rubin, Melnik 55, Shiroka Melnik vine.
