Region: Thracian Valley, Southern Bulgaria, Protected Geographical Indication. The grapes come from Katarzyna Estate's own vineyards at the hilly border zone terrains between Bulgaria and Greece (the No Man's Land) in the outskirts of the east slopes of Rhodope mountain with average altitude of 187-210 m. Only few miles away from the most famous Thracian Tomb Mezzek (4th century BC), Katarzyna Estate wines benefit from he unique micro climate, most diverse soils, exciting scenery and meticulous varietal selection, which together with the inspired and dedicated work of the winemakers give birth to White Soil varietals, the hallmark wines of the whole region.

Careful selective hand picking in crates, followed by cooling in cooling  room for 20 hours  and immediate processing at a temperature of 8-10° C. The grapes are double sorted by hand in the vineyards and on sorting tables before reception in the winery, then destemmed and crushed. Cold maceration at 8-10° C for 5-7 days is followed by alcohol fermentation in barrels with volume 400 L at controlled temperature of 28-29° C, finishing with post maceration of the wine together with the solid particles for 7-9 days at 26-28°C. Finally the malo-lactic fermentation takes place in barrels with volume 400 L, where the wine continues its barrel aging.
