Through the lands of Thracians

12
Days

Day 1: Sofia - Chernogorovo - Brestovitsa

Arrival at Sofia airport, wine tastings at Neragora and Todoroff wineries

The tour starts with a trip to Neragora Winery at the village of Chernogorovo, about an hour eastward of Sofia airport. The earth is clean, virgin and strong, every year in the area of ​​Chernogorovo hundreds of storks come back to shrink their nests. These are the lands of the ancient Thracians, among the first in the history of humankind to make and worship the wine.

Later, the trail in the steps of the Thracians continues to the town of Brestovitsa with a check-in at Todoroff Hotel and Winery - the first boutique cellar in Bulgaria which paves the way for a new style in wine making. The tasting of exquisite wines is followed by a dinner at the onsite restaurant.

Wine tasting at Yustina winery and sightseeing in Plovdiv

The day begins with a short trip to the nearby village Ustina where Yustina Winery is located.

In almost a blink of an eye, the route takes us to Plovdiv - a city with a spirit of antiquity. Built on the three hills /i.e. tepe/ that were grouped together – Nebet Tepe, Taksim Tepe and Djambaz Tepe, Plovdiv emerged as a real town in the XII c. B.C.

 

The beginning of vine-growing and wine making in this area was set by the Thracians. They are also considered to be the best winemakers. People produced wine 5000 years ago on the Balkans, which is a proof that the Thracians were the first to transform grapes into wine. The first vines were brought by them from the Middle East to what is now southern Bulgaria.

 

Day 3: Plovdiv - Bachkovo - Plovdiv

Visit to Bachkovo monastery and wine tasting at Dragomir winery

Bachkovo Monastery “Assumption of the Holy Virgin” was established by the great Domestic of the West Grigorii Bakuriani under the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Alexis I Komnin.

The picturesque road to the village of Mogilovo leads to Midalidare Winery where wine is produced exclusively from grapes of own vineyards as the winemaking technology incorporates all modern requirements for environmentally friendly product. The first wine cellar of Midalidare with a capacity of only 120,000 bottles a year was built in 2009, while the second cellar, built in 2011, increased the production by another 160,000 bottles a year.

 

Day 5: Mogilovo - Elenovo - Jrebchevo dam
