I have been visiting Shestaka Wine Cellar with my foreign guests for years know and I know that the owner is an acquired taste. People often perceive him as rude, but the simple fact is that he is just a little strange and once you...More

The owner wasn't too friendly when we first arrived, but warmed up to us once he saw we wanted to buy some of his wine, not only taste it. The cellar is original and quaint. Definitely worth the climb up the steep hill.

It offers traditional Bulgarian wines from the region. Very beautiful city views. Not very friendly owner. Good prices for wines. We saw two rainbows here.

Very nice place on a hill, small family owned wine cellar. The owner showed us the cellar and told about Bulgarian wines. We tried one and bought the bottle (in plastic, which is an advantage for plane-travelers). Now I regret, that I bought only one,...More
