Katarzyna Estate is located in the most southern part of Bulgaria. The region is extremely favourable for growing vines and is on the same latitude as some of the most famous wine regions in Europe. The cellar is located at the foot of the Eastern Rhodopa Mountain, just 2 km away from the border with Greece. The area is hilly, very picturesque and still charmingly wild.

The area is known for its ancient history and traditions. Sources of more than 5000 years, proves that the Thracians and Romans who lived in those lands, are engaged in Viticulture and Oenology.

The interesting architecture plan divides the cellar into three levels, which allows gravity transportation of grapes and wine from level to level.
