About Wine Region

As part of the Danubian Plain wine region (also known as the Danube River Plains), Vidin area enjoys hot summers with extensive sunny days, an excellent microclimate and specific soil (red, sandy limestone). This is where the first wine school opened in 1887. Today, seven winemakers in the Vidin area continue the long winemaking tradition.

All the streets and buildings of Vidin, the nearest transport hub to Belogradschik, are oriented towards the Danube and the Riverside Park that spreads out along the river’s banks. With its recreational areas, beaches and landscapes (which combine English parks and Baroque Austrian gardens), the Park offers many places for relaxation and recreation.
