Wine and Food Experience

Enjoy Wine and Food in Bulgaria! Wine has been known in the land of Bulgaria since ancient times. Archaeology, folklore, and literature provide ample evidence that wine grapes have thrived in these lands ever since the late Stone Age: grape growing and wine making were vital to the way of life of the Thracians, Romans, Greeks, Slavs and Bulgarians. The oldest Bulgarian wine cultures, existing nowadays and dating back to Thracian times – Pamid, Dimyat, Misket, Gamza, Mavrud and Broad Vine of Melnik grapevine- will be a part of this tour.

Travel with us on the road of the wine and enjoy the best Bulgarian wine sorts accompanied by good food. Bulgarian cooking – varied and so tasty – is a perfect accompaniment for the wine. During the tour the tourists are going to visit beautiful places, which are famous for their wines.

You will have the opportunity to try wines like “Melnik” and “Cabernet Sauvignon” in the impressive atmosphere of the nature wonders in the smallest towns of Bulgaria.

In Berkovitsa, there is the wine cellar “Todoroff”, which is the first of its kind in Bulgaria. It offers the customers unique wines and special treatment of the product. The wine isn’t only a spirit product. It combines history and art. You can take part in the wine tasting of the most famous Bulgarian wine sort – “Mavrud” and some other red wines.

We continue our tour with the Architectural and Ethnographic Complex Etar – situated on the outskirts of the town of Gabrovo. It is an open air museum, the purpose of which is to present the architecture and the style of life in Gabrovo and the region during the second half of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century.

The big towns in Bulgaria are also spectacular. One of them is Veliko Tarnovo – one of the oldest towns in the country, as its history dates back to more than five thousand years ago, which is proven by archaeological excavations. The most significant monument of culture in Veliko Tarnovo is the medieval fortress Tsarevets, situated on the homonymous peak, surrounded on three sides by the river Yantra.

The first producer of sparkling wine in our country is the wine cellar Lyaskovets – wine tasting – white, red and dessert wines.
