Furmint in February

So, the historic wine region of Tokaj is dominated by the Furmint grape. A superb mirror to the terroir, Furmint reflects the volcanic soils with precision giving us wines with wonderful minerality. A certain delicious saltiness. This grape creates elegant dry wines, as well as providing a superb backbone of acidity for the legendary Aszú wines of the area. This versatility means it is no surprise that this variety covers some 60% of the region.

At the February market there will be two main Furmint threads: a seminar and an open tasting.
- 10.30am -11.30am FURMINT SEMINAR tasting of 12 Furmint wines led by Tokaji wine expert LÁSZLÓ ALKONYI

 An impressive list by any standards. We are indeed honoured! There has been great interst in this unique event and all the tickets have already been allocated. You can still join us for the open tasting:

- 11.30am-2pm HEGYALJAI FURMINT FEBRUARY: Furmint tasting with artisan producers of Tokaj-Hegyalja
Almost all the winemakers whose wines are to be shown at the seminar will be pouring their wines here. This is an excellent opportunity to meet some of the trendsetters in the region and find out more about their wines.

Only a week to go!
