What you'll do

During your personal tasting experience I will guide you through the distinctive world of Bulgarian wines. Although Bulgaria has been producing wine for 5000 years it is still relatively unknown to the rest of the world. Now a rising new generation of Bulgarian boutique winemakers are devoted to the craft and bringing new attention to our country.

You will taste 5 wine varieties of local grapes unique to Bulgaria, that can not be found anywhere else: Miskets, Melnik, Mavrud, Gumza and Rubin. Plus, local cheeses, artisanal bread and mineral water.
The tasting is held in one of the best boutique wine shops in Sofia – Tempus Vini, which is located on an artsy street in the city center, known for its fine restaurants and boutiques. And just a few streets away from Sofia’s main pedestrian boulevard.

During the tasting I can tell you about the wine regions of Bulgaria including the history and the wine culture of my beautiful country.

All tastings are held in English or Bulgarian. Duration is about 1.5 hours. Then I can offer you suggestions of my favorite restaurants nearby to finish your evening. :)

My name is Kalin - founder of Tempus Vini Wine Point and passionate wine connoisseur. I live in Sofia, Bulgaria and own a small, unique wine shop in the center of the city. I immersed myself into the world of wine seven years ago and have never stopped exploring this immense universe! Together we will discover the unknown treasures of Bulgaria, unique wine varieties that you have probably never tasted before. But once you try them, you will never forget. Bulgarian wines are indigenous, artisanal and one of a kind. They are just waiting to be found…by YOU!

Great experience in Sofia! Kalin was very flexible, friendly and informative. We got the chance to try several wines from Bulgaria and all of them had a very unique taste. There was also plenty of cheese. We learnt many things and had a great time! Definitely an experience not to miss in Sofia.

I am super excited to write this review for this wine tasting experience! First of all, the host is very flexible and though we couldn't make the original hour he offered an alternative. I was with friends in Sofia and really wanted for them to taste some bulgarian wines. I couldn't have chosen for a better place! Kalin was super friendly and knowledgeable and the overall experience felt very warm and cozy. We tasted 5 wines which even me as Bulgarian haven't known by now. The cheese was delicious and the things that Kalin can share with you are super interesting! I will recommend this experience for foreigners visiting Sofia, but also for Bulgarians like me who would like to learn a bit more about the wine culture. Kalin, thank you for the experience, it was very nice!
