Back in 2006, Natalia Gadzheva and Konstantin Stoev, a family of talented wine technologists, laid the foundations of a small but very ambitious project – a boutique winery that would produce some of Bulgaria’s highest-quality wines. They named it Dragomir – after the same-named village in Plovdiv region, which was originally intended to be the home of the future winery due to the ideal conditions for wine production there. However, it took more than a decade and several failed attempts before the first sod was turned. And it was done not in the village of Dragomir, but in Brestnik, another wine village in Plovdiv region which, at the whim of fate, happened to be closely linked to the professions of the two technologists.
Meanwhile, Dragomir became part of the city life in Plovdiv and developed into one of Bulgaria’s most recognizable and uncompromising wineries, while Natalia Gadzheva and Konstantin Stoev solidified their position as two of the country’s most influential wine professionals.
Their long-awaited new home is now complete – the winery in Brestnik is one of the most modern in Bulgaria, impressing not only with its architecture and design, but also with its concept – to be a place dedicated not only to wine production but also to wine connoiseurs.
The investment totals BGN 3 million, which was financed primarily through a bank loan.
