In this episode I wanted to share with you my experience of Bulgarian wines. I attended a Virtual Zoom tasting hosted by Bulgarian Sommelier Zareh Mesrobyan (Winner of 2018 Gaggenau Sommelier Competition) and was inspired by the quality, the prices, and the interesting indigenous varieties this country has to offer.
