    It was an excellent wine tasting. We had 6 different bulgarian wines and three cheeses. Kalin was a very compent host, and being in his wine shop was super cozy. All in all a great experience.

    Interesting event, got to try variety of wine from Bulgaria. Some small snacks to accompany the wines. May have been better as a pairing event.
