Stretching from the foot of the Sredna Gora mountain range to the sub-Balkan region with the majestic peaks of the Balkan mountain range as a backdrop lies the famous Rose Valley region. The Rose Valley Wine Trail is inspired by the Thracian heritage found on these lands. Part of the Rose Valley stretches over an area called the Valley of the Kings because of the numerous tombs of Thracian kings discovered. During the tour, you will visit the most famous Thracian tombs - the Thracian tomb of Kazanluk and the Thracian tomb of Starosel.
You will be spending five nights at Spa Hotel in Hisarya.
The base for the tour is the famous spa resort town of Hisarya, where 22 hot water springs can be found. Apart from indulging in the spa services and recreational options offered at your hotel, Hisarya is a great place to discover on foot, on a bike or even on a horse from one of the nearby horse-riding centers. The tour includes a day trip to the gorgeous Plovdiv - Europe's oldest continuously inhabited city, where we will also taste wine at the local winery - the Dragomir Winery Estate. Following the Thracians footsteps, we will visit the town of Panagyurishte where the most exquisite Thracian golden treasure resides. Here, the Rumelia Winery opens its doors to welcome you and introduce you to its award-winning wines among which its wine from the local variety Mavrud has gained considerable recognition. The tour ends at Starosel Wine & Spa Complex and the enchanting Chateau Copsa reminiscent of the Medieval fortress that once existed not too far from today’s boutique winery.
