The name of the winery comes from the uncovered nearby fortress Castra Rubra (The Red Fortress), dating back from the early Byzantine period.

Visitors are being invited to two areas: a guest room and a tasting hall where the experienced team, working at the winery, introduces tourists with the technology used for growing vineyards and offers tasting of selected wines.
The wines produced here are truly unique, stylish and with excellent taste, crafted with the help and advice of the famous French oenologist Michel Rolland. Almost all of them are a precise blend between the grape varieties Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Ruby ??and Mavrud. The ratio, of course, is kept a secret, but all wines are always made on the basis of merlot.
