The history of Bononia Estate is like a journey through the centuries starting as early as the times of the Roman Empire. In the late 19th century one of the first breweries was established in what is now the location of the Bononia Estate but during the period of the transition it sank into oblivion. In 2013, in the times of the modern Bulgarian state the company began its revival, this time as a winery using modern technologies integrated by a family of people who are passionate about their country and determined to start and grow their business here. People who are in love with aviation and firmly believe that one must set their spirit free in order to make one’s dreams come true.

The vineyards are located in North West Bulgaria, right on the shore of the Danube River where they enjoy a continental climate at 35-50 m. altitude and benefit from the influence of the river.

Bononia Estate Koshava Chardonnay wine spends one month in French oak barrels, more to soften the edges than to impart flavour. Chardonnay grapes are carefully selected, hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. Fermentation and maceration take place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

This is a crisp dry white with a medium body and notes of peach, grapefruit and the vaguest hint of tarragon. The same fruit flavours follow on the palate which is more akin to a new world chardonnay than one from Europe. Great with creamy pasta dishes, seafood and soft cheeses.

Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.
