A private tour leader will be waiting outside your place of accommodation in Sofia in the morning to pick you up, and transport you to your first destination: a high-quality winery in Thracian Valley (1.5h)
At each winery, a representative will meet you and welcome you into the winery. The representative is the winemaker, the owner, the manager or the onsite wine tourism manager.
Your winery tours will typically follow a 'grape-to-bottle' approach starting with a visit or talk about grape cultivation and vineyards. The wine route continues into the wine cellar, where you will learn about harvest and wine production. In the barrell room, you will understand the process and meaning of ageing wines.
The winery tour ends in the tasting room with a tasting of 5 wines from the cellar (white, rose and red) accompanied by mineral water and local appetizers. The winery representative will lead the tasting, and answer all your questions.
Two very different wineries will be visited during your full-day excursion.
Between winery visits, a traditonal lunch will be served. Your tour leader will be happy to introduce Bulgarian culinary specialities. Your meal promises to take your taste buds on a tour of Bulgaria's most local and authentic favors.
Wine will be available to purchase at each cellar at favorable cellar-door prices.
At the end of the day, your private tour leader will drop you off at your place of accommodation in Sofia.
