Activity Overview
Book a one day Bulgaria Wine Tour from Plovdiv with us and get a taste of the uniqueness of the Plovdiv area, enjoy the local wine, discover the local grape varieties, learn about the history of the area and, most importantly, have an unforgettable day.

Welcome to your Bulgaria wine and food adventure!

A private tour leader will be waiting outside your place of accommodation in the morning to pick you up, and transport you to your first destination: a high-quality winery just outside Plovdiv. 

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 Plovdiv.

The hosts were fantastic-- they know a ton about wine and you can't help but get swept away by their enthusiasm. We did a wine tasting at their site in Plovdiv. All the wine was delicious, and there was a full charcuterie board (with fresh Bulgarian cheese and salami) to accompany it. You get a lot of bang for your buck, too. We ended up stocking up on gifts/wine for ourselves for the rest of the ... more trip here. I would highly recommend adding this onto your Plovdiv itinerary!

I did the full day Plovdiv tour with two friends and I cannot recommend it highly enough! Our guide Vasil was incredibly knowledgable, not only about Bulgarian wine making but also the many questions we had regarding Bulgarian history. The three wineries we visited were fantastic, involving multiple tastings, tapas and tours of the wine making process. Overall it was a highly enjoyable and engaging ... more experience and ultimately the best wine tour I have ever been on!

Book a full day wine tour starting from Plovdiv to the under-the-radar Sakar region. Meet small winemakers that are striving to put Sakar wine on the map. Enjoy wine tastings with ... morecharming owners and winemakers that are passionate about their region and their wine.

It is safe to say that the Sakar region is a micro-area that is not yet developed and does not have masses of tourists coming through and that is part of the charm!

Spend the day in Sakar sampling delicious local wines at two wineries while your Tour Leader takes care of you and offers information about the region and about Bulgarian wine in general. Enjoy a traditional lunch at an unpretentious restaurant that only locals frequent.

Not only is this region famous for growing roses and producing high-quality rose oil, it is also the smallest ... morewine region in Bulgaria. Visit one winery and enjoy a wine tasting while taking in the beautiful views of the Sredna Gora and Balkan mountains. 
The Valley of Roses is Bulgaria’s smallest wine region and a region named after its vast rose plantations. Bulgaria is a top producer of high-quality rose oil. This small region is nestled between the Sredna Gora Mountains and the Balkan Mountain Range, which gives it a unique terroir and blesses any visitor with stunning mountainous views.

Spend the day in the Valley of Roses visiting one winery and a site related to rose oil production. Meet the people working hard to produce high quality wines and rose oil and make their region recognizable for not only rose oil but wines.

The main native grape in this region is Red Misket. A pink-skinned grape that produces floral white wines.

Enjoy a Bulgarian lunch.
