Chamlija Vineyards, located at Büyükkarıştıran The Camlica family has been farming in Buyukkaristiran, Luleburgaz since 1936. The first generation of the family immigrated from Kubadin, Razgrad, in northeastern Bulgaria. Kubadin was renamed Loznitsa in the 1930s. The new name means “Vineyard Place” in Bulgarian, referring to the fact that this was the first place where American rootstocks were grown first time in the country. Arcadia, between Luleburgaz and Istiranca Mountains, that is on the Historical Wine Road Named after Arcadiapolis, the ancient name of Luleburgaz in the Eastern Roman period, Arcadia Vineyards is the pioneering establishment in the resurrection of this ancient terroir, planted in the 2000’s. It is located between Luleburgaz and Strandja mountains, where once the Ancient Wine Route has passed.

At lunch we will look for a place to stop by; it maybe a vineyard or just a new place that we will discover together or maybe a picknik, why not?

We drove two hours before getting to our first stop which was “Vino Dessera” in Kırklareli region. The road was good and it was an easy driving. I also discovered this brand with everybody else.
