Bessa Valley is located on 250 ha, of which 140 have already been planted. The main cellar forms an arc dug in the hill. The Rotunda is next to it, a place, where the fermentation is carried out. About 720 000 bottles of the finest wine are made annually. About 80% of the production is for export. The largest markets for the wine from the Valley are Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Canada, USA, and Russia, and since recently – China, Japan and Hong Kong. The wine-makers from Bessa Valley, are inspired by this place as much as the Bessians were 2500 years ago. Everything at the Bessa Vallet Winery is done with the greatest respect for nature, the people, the vines and its fruit.

Four thousand years ago merchants from Troy came to the West of the Black Sea, in the Land of Thrace to purchase the most famous ancient drink. 3 500 years ago, this was the valley of the Bessians, the most rebellious of Thracians. They safeguarded and kept the sanctuary of the God of wine and were known as the most competent in his cult’s rituals. After the Great Migration of the People, the bloodline in the valley changed and different people came. The wine, however, remained.
