The Bulgarian wine is good and promising, and the interest of Bulgarians for their wine continues to grow. So, what’s more fun than discovering it through a very friendly and creative activity like painting. Light on one of these new trend of testing with the « Wine and Paint » events destined to meet the success.
It was « Something pink, something sweet, something artsy », and it already gave us envy. I participated the last week to a very interesting event called « Wine & Paint. rosé theme /paint/ wine tasting » in Sofia organized by Wineo and Rosso, whose founders are totally in love with Bulgarian wine (and us too!). The first one is a wine shop which promotes Bulgarian wine (« only ! »). The second one is a the only painting bar in Sofia. They associated together for a very special wine tasting event Wine Rosé and Paint for ladies. I love this kind of events and I did not really know what to expect of this one. In fact, I do not paint specially well (when I paint an apple it looks like a strawberry…) and when I saw the pictures of the last events, I was really impressed by the beautiful paintings realized by the guests who participated. I was not sure to paint as well but I said to myself that the main thing was to participate. Of course, I felt very well welcomed by the team and others participants, a glass of delicious wine rosé (the wine of the tasting) in the hands.
The Bulgarian wines were proposed by Wineo and were all very delicious, sweet, fruity and fresh. So, a delight ! We all installed ourselves in front of our still white canvas in order to start the reproduction of the model while continuing to taste Bulgarian wines Rosé (5 in total).
Among the wines Rosé, I remember first the one with a magic name in french Sintica La Poesie Rose 2015, very nice, from Struma River valley. We tasted also Via Verde Expressions Rose 2015 and Orbelia Via Aristotelis Rose 2016 also from the same region in Bulgaria. Then, Malkata Zvezda Rose 2016 and Bratanov Rose Maria 2015 from Sakar and Eastern Rhodopes (click on the name to get more info about it), All bottle labels are very nice and colored and have been designated by Silvana from Wineo where you can find all those wines Rosé. Must : This month is the month of the Rose wines -5% and addicionally -5% with Rosso promo code.
A local artist guided us step by step through the beautiful painting while the wine expert helped us refine our palates with some of the finest bulgarian rosé on the market. I love the idea because apart from the quality of the wines and the originality of the concept, the atmosphere with others guests is very very friendly and relaxing.
The lady sitting on my right helped me to translate from Bulgarian to English and showed me how to do. Her paint was beautiful, she was really gifted. It was a very nice moment, definitely.
