Event Details

Date: 25 October, 18.00–22.00 Location: Danubius Hotel Gellért, Budapest Type of event: consumer walking around tasting with wineries from Eger and some masterclasses The same climate as that of Burgundy – maybe this is the most often cited attribute of Eger wine region, but not the only one. A historic, 1000 year old wine region around the famous city of Eger, the city of legends. Eger might not be the most famous, but it must be the most versatile: besides the Burgundy varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir – you will find the authentic blends, the red Egri Bikavér and the white Egri Csillag. Single varietal wines made of indigenous grapes are important as well, like Kékfrankos, Leányka, Kadarka, and some exciting wines are made of common and less common international grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Viognier. The tasting lasts for four hours – just enough to visit the 10 exhibitors. Do not miss Gróf Buttler and Kovács Nimród Wineries, both have wines from the best „grand cru” of Eger called Nagy Eged. Tickets are available in limited quantity, price: 4500 HUF (14,5 euros) The event website is in Hungarian, but you can write to the organizers for help.
