Back in 1878, a young man – Iliya Rabchev left his native village of Byala Cherkva in Bulgaria and went to France to study winemaking. Four years later, he returned to his family in Byala Church to found Rabchev Winery. Everyone works hard and soon the winery becomes the largest producer of wine in the area.
The vineyards are blessed to be located in a place of MAGICAL BEAUTY. Among green hills with wonderful views of the Danube River. The sun’s rays gently touch our grapes during the day, and the river breeze cools them at night.
The harvest is done at night to control the temperature and preserve the aromas and taste of the grapes.
We cultivate 150 decares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Muscat Ottonel and Merlot varieties, constantly monitoring the condition and growth of the vines and replanting if necessary. The latest plantings are of the Pinot Noir variety, from which we expect to extract a new unique and fascinating taste for the future.
In 2023, we plan to open a new part of the Wine Cellar in the Wine Complex, with a terrace offering a breathtaking view of the river in combination with wonderful wine, tastings and wine tours.
