Castra Rubra is a Latin name which literally means red fortress. This fortress has been recently discovered by Bulgarian archeologists. Indeed, 15 centuries ago at this place there was a mythical Byzantine fortress with strategic location. For the first time the archeological excavations have proved that the place was inhabited by several different ethnic groups. The fortress was situated on the ancient important trade route "Via Diagonalis" connecting Europe and the Orient. Even nowadays one can see the traces of the big diagonal road built by the Byzantine people to connect Rome and Constantinople. The excavations proved that Castra Rubra was not only a fortress but there was also a settlement and probably a big facility hosting travelers and caravans.

Construction of Castra Rubra Winery started in 2006. The winery is a real architectural jewel supplied with the latest technologies and equipment meeting all standards for quality and minimal external influence upon grapes and wine. The place has been chosen not only because of the excellent conditions for growing vineyards - suitable sun exposure, soils with good drainage and extremely rich and various composition, but also because the place is full of history.
