The terroir in these parts of the country is more suitable for red wines but you will definitely try excellent white sorts. For this journey we have selected wines with a powerful and memorable, yet elegant flavor, that go beyond simple pleasure and capture the character of the land. The “King” is MAVRUD, made of the oldest autochthonic red wine grape variety. It is characterized by intense ruby color, a lot of tannin, distinctive pleasant aroma with hints of blackberry and mulberry and a full-bodied flavor. It is a wine aging very well in oak barrels which makes it complex and well-balanced.

The tour will take you to eight highly awarded wine cellars: Villa Yustina, Castra Rubra, Katarzyna Estate, Old Cellar Parvenets, Mezek Winery, etc. You will spend 2 nights in boutique hotels which are part of wine-cellars (Chateau Copsa and Edoardo Miroglio). Their cuisine has a tradition in pairing fine wines with gourmet meals. The tour includes wine tasting in exquisite authentic Bulgarian houses, a walk through the immaculate vines of some of the wineries and possibility for wellness and vinotherapy procedures in Todoroff Wine & Spa hotel. The fabulous city of Plovdiv, one of the oldest cities in Europe, is a remarkable part of the trip. It is valued for its numerous heritage sites from Roman Antiquity and Byzantium to Ottomans and present times, and the famous Thracian necropolis in the Rose valley (UNESCO World Heritage) and the majestic architecture from the Bulgarian National Revival period in Koprivshtitsa. You will also be able to see the eclectic mix of influences from Byzantine, Georgian and Bulgarian art and culture in the Bachkovo monastery.
