Sofia Wine&Tapas walking tour is Sommelier guided journey where you have the opportunity to explore Sofia's vibrant wine scene. It includes a visit of three unique wine venues chosen for their excellent wine selections and contribution to Bulgaria's wide variety. Will taste two wines at each of the places or six in total. All of them are made from indigenous Bulgarian grape varieties. A local English speaking Sommelier will guide you through the selection. Light bites/tapas will be served at some of the venues. The duration of the tour is 2-2.5 hours and the total walking distance is 2km or around 30 minutes. It suits people who have more knowledge but also those who are just starting to appreciate wine. You can meet new people, learn fascinating stories and have fun with wine.
My name is Pavlin Ivanov, and I was born and raised in Bulgaria. I lived for nine years in Dublin, Ireland. My hunger for knowledge and determination to turn information into action has contributed to my recent success in senior leadership roles in the hospitality industry. As a child, I had one professional dream - to be a tour guide. I somehow ended up acquiring a WSET Wine and Spirits Diploma instead. This is how I discovered the wine – my passion for understanding the nuances of a cross-cultural world of history, tradition, creativity, and versatility.
Tapas/light bites in two of the venues
Six wines in three venues or two wines in each.
The three venues for the tour are craft wine shops and wine bars, selected for their variety, passion for Bulgarian wines and incredible stories. Each of them will show you its own character and charm but they all share the same religion - wine.
There are ten spots available on this experience. This experience includes alcohol. Only guests who meet the legal drinking age will be served alcoholic beverages. Guests ages 18 and up can attend.
