About this tour
Let’s go explore the Valley of Roses!
Some people may know that Bulgaria is famous for its roses and rose oil production.
Bulgaria has a long history with growing roses and producing high-quality rose oil!
The best time to visit the Valley of Roses is from the middle of May to the beginning of June. Why? This is the season for roses. Rose fields are in full bloom and rose picking is taking place.
On Sunday 31st May, we will visit a rose field and learn about rose growing, rose picking and rose oil production. You can see, smell and feel the beautiful pink roses of Bulgaria (the Damascena rose).
We visit Sopot winery- a small family-owned winery located in the Valley of Roses in the town of Sopot with a beautiful view of the Balkan Mountains and the Sredna Gora Mountains too.
The winery owners will welcome us and tell us about the story of their passion – their winery!
The WineTourMaker – Krassimira Kodukova – will lead a wine tasting of five (5) wines from Sopot winery
We end our visit with a delicious, traditional Bulgarian meal in the charming garden of the Sopot winery
Join us for a day of Roses & Wines!
