Eastern Europe is one of the wine world’s last undiscovered regions, at least in its modern form. Many wine drinkers will have fond memories of Bulgarian “Cab”, but today this region is a treasure trove of high quality wines and exciting local grape varieties. A new generation of private family wineries has emerged – making wines with passion and a real sense of place.
Caroline Gilby MW is one of the world’s leading experts on Eastern European wines and has been travelling here since the new dawn of independence over 25 years ago.
In six glasses of wine, she will tell the story of the wine revolution that has transformed mass-market plonk into today’s exciting and distinctive flavours. She will focus on Bulgaria and Romania as two of the most important and exciting wine countries in the east.
