The Bulgarian Wines
The Bulgarian Wines

A part of the identity of Bulgarian cuisine is the art of wine-making because Good Food goes down weel with choice beverages.
The white wines - dry and sweet - are characterised by a tingling taste and a delicate aroma. Well-known labels include Misket, Traminer, Dimyat and Riesling. The red wines - from pink to dark red are full-bodied with a bouquet acquired in the process of maturing. The most popular red wines include Mavrud, Gamza, Merlot and Cabernet.

Aperitifs occupy a special place among Bulgarian drinks. The typical national drink (rakia) is a fiery brandy ritually consumed with a variety of appetizers (meze). It's worth to try the "hot" plumb brandy from Troyan and the mellow aged grape brandy from Songurlare.

And finally, a cup of steaming coffee served with sweet jam, pancakes with honey and walnuts or baklava. Desserts tend to be overly sweet pastries and cream-filled cakes, but crepe-like pancakes (palachinki) filled with figs (smokini) are a good alternative.

The temptations are many - the choice is yours! Good appetite!
