„DiVes Estate“ Winery was built on the historic hill Simeonova Mound, located 10 minutes’ drive from Sunny Beach Resort, between the townships of Aheloy and Kableshkovo. Its location opens a splendid vista on the seashore. Our vineyards stretch along the south-eastern slopes of the hilly land nearby the winery. Our grapes mature splendidly owing to the moderately hot summer and the continuous autumn. The warm sun, the salty sea and the incessant sea breeze are indispensable to our wine’s terroir.
The place has been named after King Simeon the Great (863-927), because it is believed that he led and won the Battle at Aheloy on 20 August 917 AD from this place. This battle is one of the largest-in-scale in Europe throughout the entire Middle Ages. According to one chronicler’s account, 122,000 men fought in it.
To honour King Simeon the Great and the victory at Aheloy we raised „The Eye of the Victor“ monument /sculptor – Vasil Margaritov/ on the land of DiVes Estate that symbolizes the genius of Simeon the Great.
