 This wine tour will take you to the land of Thracians in order to discover Bulgaria`s old traditions of wine making.

In old times the Balkan peninsula was home land for the ancient Thracians, who knew how to make wine – a sacred beverage which was used in their rituals and was a part of their spiritual life.
