Plovdiv is one of the most ancient cities in the world with signs of habitation dating as far back as the 6th millennium BC. The Old Town of Plovdiv is listed in UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s small, quiet and picturesque and a real gem for culture and history lovers!

During the festival wine producers present in the unique atmosphere of the old houses their new wines. Tastings are accompanied by cultural events, lectures, devoted to wine, date information on wine producers and more. The event ends with the "Night of Masters of Wine," during which the professional jury and the audience award the best young wines. New wine tastings are part of wine culture and an opportunity for manufacturers to advertise and sell their products. There is also "Visitors choice" awards, determined by the results of questionnaires that each tasted fills in for the white, the red and the rose wine. Each completed

questionnaire participates in a lottery with a prize - a selected bottle of sweet wine and corkscrew.
