Visit up towards three wineries, snack on appetizers, indulge in a local lunch, and chat with the winemakers. Try unknown local wines such as Mavrud and Rubin. These full-day tours can be customized to your liking and interests.
Explore the western Thrace wine region with this 9-hour full-day trip from Plovdiv. The tour starts when you get picked up at your hotel in Plovdiv. Learn about the history of the area, particularly about the up-and-coming wine scene in this swath of Bulgaria, from the local guide. Three very different tastings await you along the way. Visit two different wineries and sample Bulgarian wine. The last tasting will take place in an enotheca.
At each winery, tour the premises, learning about the wine-making process and snacking on Bulgarian treats to share stomach space with the delicious wine you're sipping.
Eventually, plant yourself at a local restaurant for lunch before your last tasting and then get dropped off at your hotel in Plovdiv to conclude the tour.
