HISTORY AND TRADITIONS

 

Since ancient times the region around Suhindol has kept historical documents, artefacts and proofs of viticulture practices and winemaking. 

 

LOVICO SUHINDOL Winery is a direct successor to the oldest vine-growing and winemaking cooperative on the Balkans.  As early as 1909 the founder Marko Vachkov brought together the local vine-growers, winemakers and their families. The objective was to build a wine cellar and commence commercial production of wine, applying the most vanced winemaking techniques of that time. By its partnership nature, professionally run cellars and experimental viticulture, the winery was the oldest of this kind in Bulgaria and on the Balkans, and remained unique in our country until the end of 1920s. Marko Vachkov himself had knowledge and expertise in viticulture and oenology, as well as some engineering skills, acquired in Bulgaria and France. Under his management the cooperative grew up to become the leading wine producer in the 1920s and 1930s. In 1952 the company’s assets, wine cellars and vineyards were nationalized. In the following few decades large investments in technological renovation, market research and new vineyards were made. In 1991-1992 the winery was privatised and continued its business and development as an independent company. 
 

Today the winery is a leading name in Bulgaria's wine producing industry. The implementation of modern vinification methods, combined with the tradition and experience of over a 100 years of business practice, guarantee the creation of wines with a true Bulgarian character and quality.
