Again, it is time to get together and celebrate Bulgarian wine
On 11-13 November 2022 wine lovers and professionals from Bulgaria and abroad will gather for the 11th edition of DiVino.Taste. The event will take place at Inter Expo Centre Sofia and is organised by DiVino, a specialised media outlet.
DiVino.Taste 2022 will gather 80 Bulgarian wine producers offering over 500 labels and presenting a coherent picture of the Bulgarian wine making scene.
The first DiVino.Taste was in 2011. In a decade, it became Bulgaria's biggest and most successful forum dedicated to popularisation of Bulgarian wine and winemaking.
The forum of Bulgarian wine is an opportunity to taste and discuss wines from all Bulgarian regions, the most interesting local terroirs and styles, the interesting combinations of local and international grape varieties. The owners and winemakers themselves are at the stands, ready to tell the stories and characteristics of each wine and for the feedback and reactions of the guests.
DiVino.Taste is also a convenient professional platform for networking for wine producers, restaurant owners, merchants, distributors and end clients. It is also an opportunity to meet prominent international wine experts.
The 2022 event is the first since 2019 with a strong parallel programme of masterclasses with top Bulgarian and international lecturers on some of the hottest topics in the current wine world. These will take place at Musala Hall of Inter Expo Center Sofia.
