Panagyurishte - Thracian Gold Treasure And Wine Tasting

Visit Panagyurishte, admire the Thracian Gold Treasure, and get ready to taste the bouquet of the aroma of good wines and delicious Bulgarian food!

Panagyurishte is a small historical town in Southern Bulgaria. We are inviting you to a one-day history tour with wine tasting.

Your tour begins with a pick-up from your private guide from your hotel in Sofia at 10 am.

You will visit the Historical Museum of Panajyrishte, where is the Panagyurishte gold treasure. It is the most famous one of the Thracian gold treasures. This ancient gold has made Bulgaria famous worldwide.

The Thracians loved drinking wine and they believed that by drinking wine they get spiritual. When a Thracian king died, he was buried with a rich ritual. He was buried in a grave, called a Thracian tomb, together with his wife, the horse, the dog, and the gold treasure.

It’s time for lunch and – beyond doubt – for excellent wine! The local wine producer which we will become aware of is called Rumelia. Though not belonging to the most decorated cellars in Bulgaria, their wines are real gems! Five delicious wines will be served in the charming tasting room accompanied by appetizers, mineral water, and plenty of interesting information about viticulture in Bulgaria. Then enjoy a relaxing lunch surrounded by the captivating scenery at the winery.

About Wine of Bulgaria:

Winemaking has existed in Bulgaria since about 5000 BC

Bulgaria is one of the oldest wine producers in the world. In fact, archaeological evidence indicates that people started making wine in Bulgaria as early as 5000 BC. These people were the ancient Thracians, a collection of Indo-European tribes, who inhabited the lands of modern-day Bulgaria.

The Thracians worshipped wine as a divine drink and Zagreus (aka Dionysus), the God of Wine.

There are 44 local grape varieties in Bulgaria

There are 44 indigenous grape varieties in Bulgaria. As much as we love an excellent Sauvignon Blanc, it’s refreshing to taste entirely new varietals with no preconceptions. Wine tasting in Bulgaria affords you the unique opportunity to try Mavrud (red), Rubin (red), Broadleaf Melnik (red), Red Misket (white), Dimyat (white), and Tamianka (white).
