About Winery and Wines

Built and equipped a base for wine in the town. Klisura, and in 2008 the winery owns Chateau Copsa, rising on a hill among the vineyards, where natural conditions underground cellar is aging. Chateau Copsa is unique Bulgarian family cellar where one is united in growing grapes in the vineyard areas, produced and bottled wine in their own wine cellar.
Our vineyards are 50 hectares of six Visa grapes – native Red Muscat, Muscat, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. They are located at the foot of the Balkan Mountains, in the Rose Valley of well treated soils. Most of the wines are 30 years old.
The winery is a very short distance from the vineyards, which guarantees best quality and freshness of the grapes. Fermentation of the wine takes place in steel barrels from stainless steel and in French and American barrels. We perform all the processes of vintage harvest to bottling and labeling.
