Over Hill Over Dale Eger and Tokaj
IWINETC post tour 12-14 April 2018 | 3 days 2 nights
TOKAJ | Spend some days in Tokaj, Hungary’s world famous UNESCO world heritage site! Tokaj gained its reputation as the producer of the Tokaji Aszú wine, which has been made for 450 years as "the king of wines and the wine of kings". The Tokaji wine is the prestige brand of Hungary, unique and excellent. But Tokaj means much more; it is the region, the town, the people, the winemaking traditions and white wines of different categories. Walk around the lovely vineyards, learn about vintages and the diversity of the volcanic soils, meet the winemakers and explore the hundred years old cellars. Taste the finest dry single vineyards Furmints, search for apricot, lime or quince flavours in the late harvest, dry fruits and honey in the nectar-like Aszú wines. Furmint is the dominant grape variety of Tokaj. This tour is a well designed experience; relaxed and enjoyable, though giving you as many impressions as possible of Hungarian culture, landscape and gastronomy.
EGER | Enjoy the unique wine experience and don't miss the chance visiting the beautiful historical town Eger and the wine region! Make your own Egri Bikavér (Bull's Blood) in a local wine bar. Enjoy the tasting of wines of the region, listen the presentation of the winemakers 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. 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.
