Cult boutique winery in the village of Borovitza, near the town of Belogradchik,



It specializes in the indigenous grape varieties Bouquet, Evmolpia, Rkatsiteli and Gamza while experimenting with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It is set up by the d-r of microbiology Ogi Tcvetanov and Adriana Serebrinova, two celebrated Bulgarian winemakers with more than 60 years experience between them. A very small producer, Borovitza, churns out more than 20 wines each year with some of them less than 500 bottles. The winery has two vineyards, one above the winery planted with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. The other is near the village of Gradetc, about 10 miles North-West from the Danube port town of Vidin is planted mainly with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
