Family Wineries Tour in Plovdiv

What You'll Do

Take off on a half day tour to a quaint wine village in the Plovdiv area, off the beaten track. Follow the wine road through vineyards to small family wine cellars, and meet the winemakers and families in the area whilst tasting great wines.

Sit back and enjoy the short drive through the city towards the Rhodope mountains, while your guide tells you about the wine history of Bulgaria. Once at the wine village, you’ll drive past vineyards and head towards the first family winery that will warmly welcome you. Weather and season permitting, you’ll stop at the vineyards to learn more about the terroir and particular grapes grown in the region. Today you’ll visit 2 small, family run wineries, where you will listen to the stories of the family wine business, learn about the long standing wine traditions in the region, and taste great wines whilst snacking on delicious local appetizers. Spend the day discovering the learning about the wine region and local traditions while tasting the delightful results!

Your Local Host:

Vasil

Hi, I’m Vasil! I am the co-founder of Bulgaria Wine Tours, along with my wife, Zina. My background is in renewable energy, energy management and environmental sustainability. I fell in love with Bulgarian wines and their regions in 2013 during a research trip where Zina and I traveled around Bulgaria visiting wineries, talking to winemakers and listening to some amazing stories. We couldn’t help but think that people have got to come here and explore the wineries and do it all themselves. I love history, so I made it a point to learn the stories and legends about Bulgarian wine and its history. I love to share these stories with our guests, and I am always excited to show off Bulgaria and the quality wines from here - off of the wine tourist track.
