Terroir, sun, sea and wine
The production of grapes and wines in Pomorie dates back to 1st century BC. If we add the favorable natural factors – sunshine and refreshing sea breezes to the traditions, we will understand why Pomorie is one of the most interesting wine regions in Bulgaria.
Tohun Winery continues these ancient traditions of grape production and winemaking.
It all started back in the year 2000 to fulfill a dream, and the difficult task to connect the old traditions with modern winemaking.
There are 65h vineyards planted, located in East Black Sea region, with different varieties of grapes – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet sauvignon.
Tohun Winery was built in 2009. It is located on the main road from Burgas to Pomorie, with convenient transport and permanently open doors for visitors. The architecture is Proto-Bulgarian tents – Tohun was the Proto-Bulgarian name of Pomorie.
The first grape harvest and the first vintage have been made in the same year.
