Special History And Wine Tour

Summary

DiVes Winery is located close to the Town of Aheloy and Nesebar. It was built on the historic hill of Simeon’s Mound which has a magnificent view over the Black Sea coast between Aheloy and Pomorie. Here, the Bulgarian king Simeon the Great defeated the Byzantine army in a grandiose battle in 917 A.D., thus affirming the power and position of Bulgaria. In honor of Simeon’s victory, we raised a monument named "The Eye of the Winner", which became a symbol for the winery and is invariably depicted on our wine label. The highlights of the Special History and Wine tour are: - The story of the Battle of Aheloy; - A circular walk around the winery; - Basic Wine production techniques; - Combination of 5 excellent wines with 5 Bulgarian appetizers; - Wonderful view over Nesebar, Aheloy and Pomorie; - Wine shop. We offer free parking for bus, minibus and cars.
