I am Ivaylo and was born in Sofia. My deep passion for wine lasts for many years, I regularly visit wine fairs, courses, tastings and other wine events in Bulgaria. Therefore I can definitely say that I am very well familiar with the “wine map” of Bulgaria and my knowledge is up-to-date, also I really like travelling. I am a WSET® CERTIFIED Level 2 Wines & Spirits (passed with distinction) by the London Wine & Spirit School, also a certified tour guide and member of The Association of Bulgarian tour guides.
