We booked a wine tasting in Sofia for 4 people, which included 5 tastings and appetizers. When we booked through the website we had to pay first before the details of where and when were confirmed which we were a bit skeptical about. However, we could not have had a better experience! We were set up with Tempus Vini Wine shop in the middle of Sofia and the host, and tasting was perfect. We enjoyed our 5 tastings and learned about Bulgarian wine from the very knowledgable owner of the shop. We spent over 2 hours at the tasting and the host went above and beyond by making us mulled wine as it was so cold that evening. All four of us would say the wine tasting was a highlight of our time in Sofia!

Dear Laura,

Thank you for leaving a great review!

We are so happy that you and your friends enjoyed your tasting of five boutique Bulgarian wines in Sofia. We couldn’t agree more that the tasting venue and the tasting host are fantastic! We were particularly happy to read that you learned about Bulgarian wines through this tasting experience, and that it was the highlight of your time in Sofia.

We hope that all of you continue to drink and learn about Bulgarian wines – even back in your home country!

Hope to welcome you back to Bulgaria again in the future!

Best regards,

We were a little apprehensive, but optimistic, to put ourselves in the hands of BWT for five days. It was great. Everything went according to plan. Vasil and Zina are the husband and wife team who run the business. Vasil was stuck shepherding us around for 5+ days starting with pickup at the Sophia airport until he dropped us off at the airport on the sixth day. He was always early, very knowledgeable , fun to be around, and the winery visits went off without a hitch. The accommodations were good - especially the Midalidare Hotel. V&Z are plugged into the wine business in Bulgaria and arranged really good visits for us. Plovdiv is a very interesting and historical city I had never even heard of until this visit. Terrific trip, my wife and I really enjoyed it.

Dear Tom and Susan,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your 5-day Wine & Spa Tour in the Thracian Valley.

We are thrilled that you had a great time and enjoyed the different experiences on your tour from the historic town of Plovdiv to the winery visits and both spa hotels that you stayed in.

Your positive comments about Vasil are much appreciated.

The town of Plovdiv and the amazing rural regions of Bulgaria deserve more recognition, and we hope that you will become ambassadors for the destination by spreading the word about the Bulgaria.

We hope to see you in Bulgaria again to explore another region together.

Happy Holidays!

Best regards,
Zina & Vasil

Due to a combination of great timing (we unknowingly booked our tour during Plovdiv's 10th Anniversary Young Wine Festival) and Vasil's expert guidance and hospitality, our tour of the wine country around Plovdiv was the highlight of our recent trip to Bulgaria. We visited two wineries (enjoying a delicious lunch at the second) and then went on a short walking tour of the Plovdiv old town, before sampling some of the wines at the Young Wine Festival (where we also had the pleasure of meeting Zina, Vasil's wife and co-founder). The day ended with appetizers (and more wine) at a wine bar featuring the wines of yet another local producer. An all around fantastic experience!

The terrain, the towns, the people and the wine! It's high time the world gets a taste of Bulgaria's wines and we are fortunate to have had Vassil take us through some of the proudest sights Bulgaria has to offer. His knowledge of not just his home country but where to find the best wines is admirable. We enjoyed his company and our weekend trip and would gladly do it again.

Being a lover of wine we decided to do a day trip with Zina from Plovdiv to taste some local wines. It was a lovely day. Zina took us to 2 vineyards for tastings and tours and we had a beautiful lunch included on the day.
Zina was excellent and really made the day one to remember.
