About
Spend the day connecting with nature, learning about Bulgarian wine and taking in the tranquil atmosphere of the Bachkovo Monastery. The orthodox Bachkovo monastery is situated in the luscious Rhodope mountains and is the second largest monastery in Bulgaria. It is an absolute must-see place when visiting Plovdiv! Learn more about Bulgarian wines and the history of wine production during a visit to a local wine cellar. At the wine cellar, we will taste 5 Bulgarian wines in the tasting room! Enjoy a traditional lunch in a Bulgarian village! Try some local delicacies and, hopefully, you will become a fan of Bulgarian cuisine! Another fascinating place, seated on a high, rocky ridge in the Rhodopi mountains is Asen's Fortress, which is the last stop of our tour. This 6-hour tour combines culture, history, wine and food in the best possible way, and your friendly Tour Leader will be present to explain everything and answer any question that you may have!

The terrain, the towns, the people and the wine! It's high time the world gets a taste of Bulgaria's wines and we are fortunate to have had Vassil take us through some of the proudest sights Bulgaria has to offer. His knowledge of not just his home country but where to find the best wines is admirable. We enjoyed his company and our weekend trip and would gladly do it again.

Hello, Thank you for leaving such positive feedback about your recent Tailored Wine Weekend in Bulgaria. Your kind words about Vasil, your Private Tour Leader, are very much appreciated. We hope to see you again soon on another adventure in Bulgaria exploring the wines, food and culture of this under-the-radar country. Best regards, Zina & Vasil
