Many legendsand archeological findings unearthed in the vicinity of the town of Lyaskovets, among which is the recently found roman winepress, prove that wine-producing is one of the oldest crafts practiced by the people of Lyaskovets . In the distant 1863 they founded a society “Bee” and in the middle of XX century, fascinated by the magic of champagne, cava and prosecco, their followers were the first in Bulgaria who started the production of natural sparkling wines. Today Vimprom Lyaskovets is a leader in the category “sparkling wine”.
