On the territory of Troyanovo village are grown 200 ha of white varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Juni Blanc, Vionie, Glera and Muscat Ottonel. The remaining plantations are located in the lands of the town of Bolyarovo and the village of Tenevo, regions with traditions in viticulture and a very good combination of soils and climate for the production of red wine grape varieties with excellent qualities - Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syra. The vineyards are processed by new, modern equipment meeting all European requirements.
