Discovering the real Bulgarian wine with Bulgaria Wine Tours

On December 9th, we invited the creative family behind the popular 'Andrey Andreev Travel & Photography Blog' on a Full Day Wine Tour around Plovdiv. Starting and ending in Plovdiv, we embarked on a journey of the senses. Three wineries, 15 wines and a lot of delicious Bulgarian food. We had a great time showing our new friends around the beautiful wine country surrounding Plovdiv. We had the chance to meet winemakers and winery owners, and taste many amazing local wines: Rubin & Mavrud. The result of our trip was a fantastic article published on Andrey Andreev's blog. We have re-published it here. Enjoy the read!

On The Road: Northwest Bulgaria

We went on a road-trip to the very Northwest Bulgaria, all the way to the Danube River where Romania is visible on the other side. We visited a winery on the rocks, a winery in a cave, a fortress in the Belogradchik rocks and vineyards in the most inaccessible location ever. We went on a wine safari, met passionate winemakers, ate locally produced food, talked about wine and culture and history. We ate fish soup by the Danube River and visited a Medieval Fortress. We love this region, and can't wait to show you why...
