2 minutes to read

Are you an art enthusiast, but have never developed this passion of yours into something more than a hobby? Does painting make you feel relaxed and calm, as some sort of meditation? Are you a wine-lover and do you enjoy the occasional glass of this ancient drink? If your answer to all those questions is positive, then you have landed in the right place. Your love for wine and art just found the perfect place to express itself. Just relax and let your creativity flow at Dalivino in Sofia. Dalivino is an art gallery which focuses on the visitors` experience and organizes painting workshops and wine-tasting events, open for anyone interested! 

The concept

The concept is a comparatively new one for the country. It was introduced in 2018 and is slowly gaining the interest of more and more people. This growing popularity is probably due to the way the guests are allowed to make art even if they are just amateurs. Every evening with art and wine has a theme, which is set by the chosen painting of a professional artist. This theme is used to inspire the guests for their own creations. The artist also guides the guests and gives them tips during the creative process. Such activity is great for groups because it allows them to spend quality time in good company while developing the right side of your brain.

About the place 

The gallery is named after the infamous Salvador Dali and often hosts private events for special occasions. It is a functioning gallery during the day, so the art-and-wine-evenings are held from 7 p.m. until 10-11 p.m. You can find more information about the different events in the gallery on their website or official Facebook page. There are two locations – one in the centre of the city of Sofia and one near the mall Paradise Center. If you are not a big fan of art and painting, you can still enjoy the atmosphere by taking part in one of the wine-tasting evenings, also held at this gallery.

Why wine?

Bulgaria is a country, famous for many things, among which the almost unparalleled geographical location. This fact allows for the flourishing of the wine-business – in Bulgaria, you can find many different types of wines. Many of the wine producers are the annual winners in European, as well as in local, competitions. 

To sum up, the main thing to do in the evening is paint while sipping wine, but it is much more than that. Art allows you to expand your horizons and learn more about yourself. It helps you find new ways to release stress and tension and be a better, calmer and happier version of yourself. So, if you want to try something new and exciting, or even if you are already an artist, wine and art at Dalivino is an excellent idea for a chilled evening in Sofia
