This is the second year I’m hosting a wine and culture trip to Bulgaria, and I’m really excited about what’s in store. We’ll visit some of Bulgaria’s wine regions, from the famous Thracian Valley to the Struma Valley. Small but mighty – that’s Bulgaria’s over 4000 years old viticulture in international comparison. We’ll taste delicious wines made from international grape varieties as well as from native grapes. This is a unique opportunity to experience Bulgarian wines and culture at its best!


August 28 – September 5, 2023
