Bull's Blood Experience in Eger

Don't miss the chance to visit the beautiful historical town Eger and the Eger wine region, leave Budapest behind for a day for a unique wine experience. Make your own Bull's Blood in the exclusive wine bar and enjoy the tasting of Eger wines and listen the presentation of the winemaker about nature, humility and love.

The uniqueness of the wine region has always been its ability to grow vines capable of producing quality red and white wines. The most famous one of the region is undoubtedly, Egri Bikavér, "Bull's Blood” which is a Kékfrankos Blaufrankisch based red cuvée, a blend of three or more grapes. Winegrowers invest a lot of time and money for repositioning the brand. We are going to taste some excellent examples during our tasting tour. Besides Kékfrankos, Pinot Noir, Cabernets and Kadarka are the most commonly planted red grape varieties. Among whites Hárslevelű, Olaszrizling and Leányka are the most popular ones, each autochthon types. There is a new region brand: Egri Csillag "The Star of Eger" which is a uniform blend of white grape varieties.
