The complex is situated on a territory of about 5 square km. and has more than 180 stone installations for wine preparation.
At the very same place, used by the Thracians more than 3000 years ago, a restoration of the ancient rituals was performed. French guests took part in the red wine drinking as the ancient inhabitants of the Rhodopes used to do.
According to ancient Greek sources, the Thracians drank wine undiluted and with straws.
It is expected that the recipe for unique Thracian wine will be fully restored and several Bulgarian wine cellars have already announced that they will plant vines with the mysterious and newly recovered variety of grapes near the Orpheus tomb.
