Bononia Winery, Wine Production Since the 19th Century

The roots of the Bononia Winery estate can be traced as far back as the Roman Empire. At the end of the 19th century, one of the first breweries in Bulgaria was established on the property situated in northwest Bulgaria, in Bulgaria’s old capital, the city of Vidin. In 2013, the estate was revived as a winery that combines history with modern technologies by the Yotov Family, committed to and have a deep love and passion for the Bulgarian wine industry.

The owners revived Bononia Winery combining history with the use of modern winemaking technologies.


Varieties Grown at the Winery

In 2013, as part of the estate’s revival, the first 100 acres of young vines were planted. Today, over 270 acres of vineyards are grown at Bononia Winery, including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Traminer, Viognier, Riesling, Muscat Ottonel, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. The winery also focuses on the cultivation of the Bulgarian grape, Gamza, which is an indigenous grape variety for the region. Young vines are carefully selected from Italy and France following international customer demand and then brought to be grown at Bononia.


Renovation of the Estate and All of the Amenities

In 2016, Bononia presented their first wine brands – ISTAR, Gomotartzi, Ooh La La, and Bononia Estate. The estate’s full construction will be completed in 2020, including a boutique hotel, a restaurant, several different tasting rooms, SPA, a conference hall, and all that just 11 meters away from the Danube River. Some of the activities will comprise tastings on boats, fishing, and touring around the vineyards.

The dream of the Yotov Family and Bononia Estate’s team is to build one of the best wineries in eastern Europe and strengthen Bulgarian wine’s position internationally. They have a focus and great interest in sustainable development through training and empowering residents and supporting the study of viticulture in the area.
