The best wine I’ve ever tasted!!! Wanna bring a unique souvenir from Bulgaria? Visit Winery Messembria in Nessebar and enjoy a free wine tasting: their wine is mouth-melting. I would recommend buying a collection of three bottles: the white wine is a combination of Traminer, Muscat, and Chardonnay. The red is a typical Mavrud: Mavrud is a typical Bulgarian grape. You cannot find it anywhere. The third bottle can be a wine with Roses or Almond sweet alcoholic drink. Both are delicious and perfect for a present of special events. The quality is excellent and the price is more than affordable. For more information, please check their website Winery Messembria and Facebook page.
