During the festival Wine and Gourmet in the Old Town („Вино и гурме в стария град Пловдив”) on the 9th and 10th of May Plovdiv’s guests can enjoy a truly bohemian experience – a two-day program of culture events finely enriched with delicious dishes and excellent Bulgarian wines.
The grand opening will be on the 8th of May at 18:00 at the Roman stadium, where centuries ago emperors have celebrated spring, life and wine. Then, on the next day a symbolical opening of the spring wine season will be made in the Lapidarium (one of the stops in our tour) at 12:00. This will be the starting point of your degustation adventure lead by the honorable members of “The European Order of the Wine Knights”.
The icing on the cake will be the folklore dance and music performances by Ensemble Trakia and other artists making the celebrations a real feast for all the senses.
A glimpse of the map is enough to conclude there will be quite a lot of eating and drinking . Eight hours later, the degustations will finish at 20:00 when we are sure you will agree with the Roman wisdom – In vino veritas!
