Estimated Local Cash Needed
200 BGN - It is always good to have cash with you. The good wine will make you want to try more, order food or go after the tasting to a club or a restaurant. At most of the places they accept cards too but not everywhere. Please be prepared with cash so you don't need to search for ATM during the tour. I will always help you but the time is wine during this tour. :)
