Haraszthy Winery will host an open air event on 13 April in their Vál vineyard, where the marvellous Love statute is situated. It is a unique, grandiose statue created by Ukranian artist Alexander Milov. This breathtaking piece of art had been erected in Nevada at Burning Man festival in 2015, but now it shines its message of love in Hungary, it was inaugurated in September 2017. Guests are welcome from 4 pm in the afternoon, no entry fee, but if you want to taste the so called ’bográcsos’ (stew or goulash soup cooked in a large bowl called bogrács on open fire) and some Haraszthy wines, then a humble 2000 HUF is the cost of that (6.5 euros). The sunset is amazing at Vál vineyards with wine in hand!

Schwarzenegger loves Sir Irsai
As we posted earlier, we have learned that Arnold Schwarzenegger, former actor now politician have tasted Haraszthy Sir Irsai in a Los Angeles restaurant, and he liked it so much that he ordered some more! Sir Irsai is blend based on authentic varieties. „A nicely balanced wine manufactured for slow drinking. On the nose, the Irsai Oliver’s muscat and litchi aromas are accumulating with the elderflower characteristic. On the palate, the Királyleányka’s floral and fruity tastes are dominating.”
