Birthplace of the oldest European civilization and the wine culture – this is Bulgaria, the hidden treasure in South-Eastern Europe. Even experienced travelers will be impressed by the obvious influence of the terroir on well-established and remarkable wine varieties. They truly capture the character of this picturesque region, “locked” between the Danube River, the Balkan Mountains and the Black Sea. A fresh and fruity Riesling from the coast or an elegant and rich in color Pinot Noir, with nuances of plum jam and chocolate from the bank of the Danube river? Even though they are well known varieties, they can also be described as indigenous wines. Among them is the DIMIAT. The wines coming from this sort are aromatic, with a hint of vanilla, dry and well-balanced.
Seven prime wineries are inviting you to enjoy their warm hospitality and wine tasting experiences that wake up the senses, among them Burgozone, Nisovo Winery, Maryan, etc. Just 1 proof for the world recognition of our wine stops: Chateau Burgozone (first harvest took place in 2008!) is a proud titular of nearly 30 awards from major international events (Mundus Vini, Decanter, Concours Mondial, etc.). We will also visit the only Museum of the wine on the Balkan Peninsula. Also, it is located in a cave which makes it one of a kind in the world! It has 5 galleries and houses a collection of over 6,000 bottles of Bulgarian wine from all viticulture regions of the country and over 7,000 old vintages (ranging from 30 to 90 years in age).
Discover the magnificent Thracian Gold treasures (in the National Archaeological Museum in Sofia) and the beautiful medieval frescoes in the Rock-hewn Churches of Ivanovo (UNESCO Heritage site). Admire the unique Thracian Royal Tomb of Svestari (UNESCO Heritage site) and the oldest Gold treasure in the world (Varna Archeology Museum) dated 4100 BC. Walk on the narrow streets of Veliko Tarnovo, the capital of Medieval Bulgarian Kingdom. This Via Vino tour will be a true way to explore the best Bulgaria can offer!
