The lavish three-day event will be held entirely outdoors, providing entertainment in a comfortable and safe environment. The competition judges president - the world-famous Master of Wine Konstantinos Lazarakis - will greet the guests of the event with a pre-recorded video.

Join us for one more virtual wine chat with the co-founders of Bulgaria Wine Tours. This time we will be discussing sparkling wines in Bulgaria. While sparkling wine production is relatively new to Bulgaria and we have a lot of catching up to do with the rest of the world, there are promising results and an increase of sparkling wines on the market. During the virtual wine chat, we will talk about 3 of these wines.
