Surrounded by its vineyards on the rolling hills by the Danube River near Oryahovo, Burgozone is a family winery that constantly perfects its wines. The rich soil, the moderate continental climate, the sunlight and the river create the perfect terroir for Burgozone's elegant wines. The winery uses exclusively its own grapes, which are hand collected and sorted. Canopy management and green harvesting are practiced to obtain the highest possible quality of grapes.
