Seven Generations Winery is located in North-East Bulgaria, 30km west from Ruse city, on the outskirts of village Mechka, set among rolling hills. It is established 2008 year by Lyuben Rabchev, a very ambitious bulgarian, who is 5th generation of family winemakers. After he spent many years in USA, he came back to his roots in Bulgaria, to regenerate and continue the family traditions. In this region we have the perfect teroar for growing grapes of three main types Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, of which we make amazing red wines and rose. Soon we will offer and white wine Muscat. We have 200 dka vineyards, of which with great attention, love and perfection, we produce high level wines, in limited editions. The wine is separated in the barrels by grape variety and wine arrays. Here by the Danube river is like small oasis, the climate is very favorable, and this makes the grapes to have enough sugar and rich flavours. The vines are in great physiological condition and perfectly treated, because in Mechka village everything is so close, that we can easy control the production process. The wines age in French oak barrels.
Our concept is to extract the most from what the nature gives us. The results are amazing natural wines, rich of aromas and flavours, reserving maximum of their natural ingredients.
