Varbovka Winery

Batán de Salas de Beroz

Varbovka Winery was established way back in 1934. It is located in the village of Varbovka and is part of the northern wine-growing region of Bulgaria. Created as a cooperative, by consumer cooperative “Grozd”, the winery goes through several regimes and numerous reconstructions. In 1999 it was bought by a family of oenologists – Plamen and Svetlana Penevi. The management team of the winery is the Penevi family – engineer Svetlana Peneva and son and engineer Kaloyan Peneva are the technologists, and daughter Laura Peneva is taking several training courses at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust.

White, rosé and red wines are produced, as well as the traditional Bulgarian wormwood. The cellar does not have its own vineyards, but the grapes that are processed are mainly from local vineyards, from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Muscat Otonel and Caille Misquet varieties. The production is aimed at smaller batches of high-quality wines, divided into 3 series: no occasion, Native and Cuvee.
