PROGRAMME

Day 1.

We meet in Budapest in the morning and head to the Villány wine region to Kisharsány. The first tasting is at Vylyan cellars, one of the most prominent wine estates in Hungary and taste 5 of their many wines with cold cuts. “Choosing a name for our enterprise was determined by our commitment to the region and respect for traditions. Vylyan was the name used for Villány in a 15th Century manuscript.” Besides making high prestige wines, they are also organising local festivals and sponsor the “Barrel Artists” whose masterpieces are exhibited in front of the winery.

Following our Vylyan experience we visit a lovely cellar-row village before checking in at our hotel. We meet in the evening at the Bock Chapel, in one of the most impressive cellars of Villány. If we are lucky enough, Mr. Bock himself guides us in his underground world. The visit of the circular cellar is an exceptional adventure. Dinner with a selection of Bock wines is served at Óbor Restaurant afterwards.

Day 2.

Sauska Winery is the third Villány producer we are going to visit. They owe vineyards both in Villány and Tokaj, and are determined to make great, elegant and uniquely Hungarian wines. Their Villány Cuvée 5 vintage 2009, recently won the Decanter World Wine Awards Trophy for the Best in Show Red Bordeaux Varietal in 2013. Following the tastings of 5-6 selected wines we will have free time for strolling along the streets. We are going to have lunch with selected wines at a stylish restaurant of Gere Family. The winemaking traditions of the family goes back to 7 generations. The present wine estate was founded in 1991. Gere is a well known, high prestige winery in Hungary and abroad as well. They played an essential role in creating brands, like Kopár, emphasising the importance of terroir, introducing single vineyard approach.

We leave to Budapest late in the afternoon.
