Cooking master-class

First of all, we will go to visit a friendly Bulgarian family, get acquainted with the collection of national weaving products, try homemade bread straight from the oven, cooked with wine and hop sourdoughs. And then, under the careful supervision of the landlady, we will prepare real Bulgarian beeches with feta cheese on our own. In the shady part of the courtyard, a table decorated in the national style and aromatic tea will be waiting for us.

Guided tour of the vineyards

Bulgarians claim that wine is food, not alcohol. That is why Bulgaria is so rich in a variety tastes of wines, and our next destination is the Villa Tinta - a rich wine estate in the Danube Bessarabia. The tour begins with a glass of aromatic Muscat champagne on the rooftop, with breathtaking views of the hilly fields, Lake Yalpug and the Romanian Carpathians. The hospitable owners will then take us on a tour of their vineyards and plant. We will listen to a dozen interesting stories and taste exquisite wines.

Acquaintance with Bolgrad

Bolgrad literally means “city of abundance”. Today it is a multinational wine and tourism center with a rich history and culture. One and a half hours of walking in the fresh air under interesting stories and legends will pass so quickly.

Food, wine, music, dancing

Bulgarians have a special gift - to make a holiday out of any meal. After the tour, we will head to the vineyards and together we will cook dinner against the backdrop of the silvery Yalpug and the hilly Romanian Carpathians! Traditional music, songs and dances are included. You will not notice how "Horo" will unite everyone in one friendly circle.
