Harvest delight, walking at pathways of the vineyards and fresh air of Istiranca is waiting for you…

  • 20h of September Saturday 2014

After our first tour to Thrace Vineyard route on 7th of September, which we includes Vino Dessera & Arcadia Vineyards, we have decided to organize a new tour with a new vineyard.

Chamlija Vineyardslocated at Büyükkarıştıran

Chamlija VineyardsThe 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.
