Chateau Botevo

Southern Bulgaria

Many award winning Thracian wines! The perfect wine for every occasion!


Chateau Botevo Winery in the Thracian Valley. 

The winery has been created by three enthusiasts in the Fall of 2013. Their dream was to create unique and high-quality Bulgarian wine, combining millennial traditions with the uniqueness of the Thracian lowland, to meet the highest world standards. The winery is located in Baltalak area, which is situated around Botevo village, near the river Tundja, Yambol region. It is situated at the foot of St.Ilia hills, in the wine-growing region called the Thracian lowland in southern Bulgaria. The territory of the region is alongside Tundja River. The terrain is predominantly flat and hill-averaged, with an altitude of 100-150 m. 

The prevailing terrain in the area is flat and partially hilly territories are found, as is the example of St. Ilia.
Climatic conditions in the area are determined by its geographical location. Several climatic influences are intertwined in the region. The one with the strongest influence is that of the transient continental climate typical of the Upper Thracian Lowland. To a weaker extent, the climatic influence of the Black Sea and the Mediterranean are felt too.
Agro-climatic conditions in combination with cinnamon-forest soils on the slopes of Saint Ilia heights, are extremely suitable for the cultivation of vineyards.


At Chateau Botevo Winery, love is at the heart of it all. We have selected with loving care what varieties of wine vineyards to grow. The vineyards of Chateau Botevo have rich variety structure. We grow Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Traminer, Muscat, Grenás, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Barbera.
The size of the vineyards cultivated from the cellar is nearly 1000 decares. They are distinguished by a specific terroir. The planting material of the winery is personally selected by leading European nurseries.
We take care of the vineyards with love. We love to pick their fruits. Carefully, at the right time so the grapes can fully display its qualities within the wine produced.

The chateau has a closed production cycle.

Containers capacity foreseen is for processing 750 tons of grapes. It is done by applying the gravitational method only. The cellar has modern equipment for processing and stabilizing the wine. There is a possibility of maintaining a constant controlled temperature. The conditions in the cellar provide quality development of young wines in barrels. The cellar has over 600 new barrels of French and American oak with different degrees of firing. When the wine is ready, it is prepared to go on the market by placing it on a modern bottling line, allowing bottles to be sealed by both cork plugs and screw caps. With love and care for nature, a purification plant is built and the cleaning process is controlled by specialists at all times. The winery has its own laboratory, where regular samples are made. The winery continuously invests in the preparation and the qualifications of its specialists.

It currently offers four series – Staven, Serenity, Filigran and Collection. Chateau Botevo tends to emphasize more and more on varietal wines.
