The Sárga Borház Restaurant - Part 2

The new label for the Sárga Borház range of wines. The name? It comes from the original press house for the Disznókő estate, the stunning 19th-century building which is now one of the region's top restaurants.

More info about the Sárga Borház:
  • Sárga Borház, the original press house on the Disznókő estate, means "Yellow Wine House" in English.
  • It is a popular lunching place for winemakers and the Confrérie de Tokaj,
  • offers daily specials and seasonal dishes as well as
  • a wide range of wines primarily from Tokaj, but also a selection of leading Hungarian producers and the other AXA properties in France and Portugal (including Château Pichon-Longueville and Quinta do Noval. The new wine list will be available soon.
  • Disznókő wine dinners give guests the chance to explore traditional and less so food and wine pairings,
  • there are also special menus for groups
  • and in summer the terrace is a great place to chill out under the shade of the huge chestnut trees!

Sárga Borház and the market
One of the supporters of our local artisan market, the Sárga Borház always prepares a special market menu with foods from the producers.
The shady terrace? Great for the summer market wine bar where the winemaker pours their wine. A place to soak up the relaxed atmosphere and enjoy each other's company!

Erdőbénye - the treasury of minerality

Hidden Treasures of Hegyalja 
Erdőbénye - the treasury of minerality
guided wine tasting and wine course with LÁSZLÓ ALKONYI
At the Market
11th August 2013, 11:00
function room above the Sárga BorházRestaurant

Erdőbénye: Life between the rocks
What is minerality? - many refer to the term, but as yet no one has defined exactly what we should understand by it. Possibly the wine makers working around Erdőbénye have come closest. It is no coincidence since many regard this village the greatest dry wine area of the Tokaj-Hegyalja region.

At the wine tasting: Ábrahám Pince: Diókút, Béres: to be confirmed, Csite: Toplec, H. Bardon: Meszes, Homonna: Határi, Karádi és Berger: Narancsi, Vissy László: Peres

We hope you can join us.
