Furmint Adventures Episode 8: Kvaszinger Winery

 Mark As Read    

First off, for this video you're going to need to pour yourself a glass of perky Furmint and queue up CCR's "Green River" (BRAAAWHHHHWWWWW…. brahw-wahw-wahw-wahw-whaw-WHAW!). That's because from a rainy day, with nice people, fine wine,  and a backdrop that's a fisherman's wet dream (get it?… ok, whatever…) comes the next installm...

Furmint Adventures Episode 7: Basilicus Winery

 Mark As Read    

We kick off the second half of my Tokaj Furmint adventures this week with a visit to Basilicus Winery, an interesting endeavor that I think qualifies as an "urban" winery in Tokaj terms. They compliment their tiny production of high-quality Furmint with services that include gastronomy tours and oenophile-centric events, encompassing local vinegar ...
