Great intro to Bulgarian wines. We sampled some great wine and learned about the Bulgarian wine industry, it's history and plans for the future. Pavlin was passionate about wine and particularly Bulgarian wine! and very keen to promote it's virtues.

I had a really enjoyable couple of hours with a very knowledgeable guide who also provided a great restaurant recommendation.

If you're in Sofia and love wine then is definitely for you!

An amazing tour ! Pavlin has amazing knowledge of the wines available in Bulgaria and selected 6 beautiful but very different wines. We visited 3 different locations with two serving of lovely little tapas that went incredibly well with the wine. I would highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Sofia and allow it to broaden your horizons on the great wine that Bulgaria has to offer.

Memorable and meaningfull Saturday night with friends and wines. The walk was guided by an exceptional professional with profound sommelier knowledge who managed to summarize the most attractive facts about each wine. He has made the wine selection himself this time but also gives the option to the attendees to express their preferences and he would choose the corresponding Bulgarian wine to satisfy them. He walked us through 3 different wine bars for a talk and degustation of several local wine sorts (some rare to find) and there were no secrets or tough questions he could not address. Very welcoming charming guy, fluent in English, and dedicated to his job offered us a unique experience in old Sofia. I would highly recommend this wine walk to every wine lover:) Good luck Pavlin, we would come again for sure!

Very nice experience! The tour is informative and educational as well as pleasant. The guide, Pavlin is very well educated on the topic, shares lots of interesting information about the wines all over the world and gives interesting facts about the small wineries in Bulgaria and the 6 wines that we tasted. The tour is approximately 3 hours and I strongly recommend it to people who value quality wines and like to learn more about Bulgarian wines and wine history.

We really enjoyed our wine walk with Pavlin. He was so friendly and informative and the wines were just fab. We tried 6 wines and 3 different places and enjoyed the 10 minutes walk in between each stop. We learned so much about Bulgarian wines and it was a lovely relaxed way to spend the late afternoon on a sunny Sunday in Sofia

Very good experience, the tour gives you a nice opportunity to discover bulgarian vineyard. Pavlin takes time to explain many things about the wines, grape varieties and the different wine regions.
Great discovery for me, I am definitely bring some bottles back home with me.

We took the tour with Pavlin on the 1st of October 2022 and we learned a lot about the Bulgarian wine & also about the culinary scene. We visited 3 chic venues and tried two local wines in each; in two of the locations we also sampled some local bites (very tasty!). Pavlin is very knowledgeable (he holds a WSET level 4 diploma), friendly and passionate about what he does. We found this tour to be very helpful for planning our next two days in Sofia, while trying out very special, non-commercial (not mass produced) wines. Thank you, Pavlin!

We had a great time during the weekend with friends in the city center. We also got to know some new types of Bulgarian wines. The walk was led by a proffesionalist and we received an interesting information for rare wine styles and grape varieties. It is a great opportunity to spend 3-4 hours in a good company. Would definetely do it again and taste another set of wines next time.
