Some treasures are waiting for us to be explored after lunch in the six hundred years’ old cellar labyrinth. Hiding away in the underground world we walk to a nearby mansion for a presentation about Jewish heritage of the region. Our local expert guide is telling us about the golden age of Tokaj, the history of a local family and their connection to wine. At the end of the day we check in our hotel, located in the middle of relaxing park surrounded by vineyards, and have some time for relaxation before starting our gala dinner with Hungarian courses and wines.
If we are lucky enough, during the day we will meet with Mr. István Szepsy, „Les Seigneur du Vin 2013” who is telling us about the respect to nature, engagement and love.
Day 2. | After breakfast we follow our journey to the botrytised sweet wine world with some late harvest and aszú wines, at one of the region’s biggest winery and cellar in a nearby village.
