Other Info:
Founded in 2006, this winery is a real architectural jewel. It is set in an exquisitely designed stone building and features state-of-the-art technology both in the vineyards and at the winery. Castra Rubra meets the highest standards for quality and minimal external influence upon grapes and wine.

The winery is situated in the most south-eastern corner of Bulgaria, close to the Turkish and Greek borders, in the shadow of the southern Sakar Mountains. This place was chosen not only because of the excellent conditions for growing vineyards - suitable sun exposure, soils with good drainage and extremely rich and various composition, but also because the place is full of history.

The winery is in its last year of certification for organic production and is currently under strict observation by the certifying agency. The vineyards rely entirely on organic techniques, grapes are entirely hand-harvested. Here you will find Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Alicante Bouschet, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Syrah, Petit Verdot and, of course, the local pride - Rubin and Mavrud.

These wines are the new face of Bulgarian winemaking and Master Winemaker Michel Rolland is the exclusive consultant for this estate. The wine is a mix of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc

Beautiful, intensive dark red colour with soft garnet nuances. Classy and attractive nose: multilayered aromas - ripe black berries, mocha café, vanilla, eucalyptus, leather and sweet spices. Lavish, full body with excellent tannic structure and fruity freshness. The finish is long, grainy, fresh and balanced. The wine has remarkable aging potential (5-10 years).
