    Bring Bulgarian wine to your home, amazing service!
    I visited the shop to buy a bottle of wine to bring back to Denmark. I was given a fantastic service and ended up getting 12 different bottles shipped to Denmark by the shop for only 25 euros in transport. Amazing service i would recommend to anybody travelling to Sofia. Visit the shop and get your wine sent back home.

    Fantastic Wine Tasting Experience - highly recommend
    We enjoyed a fantastic wine tasting experience at Vini Tempus. The owner was very knowledgeable and proud of Bulgarian wine. He gave us a lot of history and we tried 6 different delicious varieties. We also enjoyed some cheese, salami and bread sticks to compliment the tasting. The experience was carried out with lots of care and attention and we would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

    Good solo wine tasting experience
    Did the wine tasting, great experience. The owner is friendly and knowledgeable. Walked through the history of wine in bulgaria. Was provided with local cheeses and salami. Tasting consists of 6 wines. 3 were of his store's brand, which I found to be the best. Good prices on wine and has bubble wrap for travellers. Highly recommend

    Obligatory stop for wine lovers
    Kalin, the founder of this wine store in Sofia, is a true wine expert who provides a thorough and comprehensive immersion into Bulgaria’s fascinating wine-making history. Kalin offered us a 6-wine tasting session with excellent options, including wines he made himself and others that are nearly unknown outside Bulgaria. This is a must stop if you love wine or simply want to understand more about what Bulgaria offers its international visitors.

Kalin was great, he owns the wine shop and makes his own wines. He is very passionate about his craft. Provided a lot of history of Bulgarian wines. We had six wines each unique and of high quality. Paired with great meats and cheeses. Overall a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

An excellent wine tasting. We were told about the various wine areas in Bulgaria and the history of wine making .
The wines that we tasted were very different and delicious. It was really interesting to try wines from different grape varieties.

Would thoroughly recommend.

A very informative, interesting and delicious wine tasting, hosted by Kalin, including two small batch Tempus Vini wines and four other Bulgarian wines (two whites and four reds). I never realised, before visiting Bulgaria, how good Bulgarian wines are, and our tastings were perfectly paired with a selection of local cheeses. We couldn't help ourselves but to buy a few bottles to take home with us! Thank you again for the experience!

This wine store is packed with amazing wines from Bulgaria. The host was so pleasant and really knows the wines in the region. He also makes his own wines which were also very good. If you would like to understand the different regions in the area or just looking to experience some wine, please take the time and do a visit. Conveniently located.

From the moment we walked in the host was welcoming and inviting. We tasted many local wines paired with charcuterie. It was wonderful learning about the culture and the wines of Bulgaria.

We went with 8 people from the Netherlands. We had a lovely bulgarian wine tasting with Kalin. He was passionate and knowledgable. We had a selection of bulgarian wine from differnt regions of the country. Kalin told us about the wine regions and their heritage and history. Some of the wines are bottled and supervised by Kalin himeself. We drank some wines with a small bottle volume wich makes for very intesting tastes and expressions. All this was acompanied by some bulgarian bites wich were also fantastic. We ended up buying some of the wines we tasted because these flavours are rare and delicious. If you have an hour or 2 in Sofia i would definately recommend you give Kalin a visit.
