The House of Wine is situated within the oldest cellar in the Sofia region, now part of the National Institute for the Study of Wine and Spirits. Originally established as a workshop for the production and bottling of high-alcohol beverages and a wine warehouse for the Vinprom State Association after World War II, the building later became the home of the Institute of Wine Industry in 1956.
Today, the House of Wine seamlessly blends an authentic atmosphere with modern design. It serves as a showcase for the history of wine production in Bulgaria and represents 19 of the country’s top producers, each dedicated to the pursuit of uncompromising quality in Bulgarian wine. The cellar boasts an extensive collection of over 150 varieties of wines and spirits, with the opportunity for visitors to engage in tastings guided by professional oenologists.
The House of Wine is not only a place to explore the rich history of Bulgarian wine but also a venue for various activities, including tastings, courses, tours, cultural events, cocktails, formal dinners, and other planned gatherings.
