Furmint Adventures Episode 11: Gizella Cellar

Vinted on March 18, 2015 binned in 1WineDude TV, on the road

I do believe that our Furmint adventures, alas, come to an end with this episode, the eleventh in the series (more were filmed, but I’m not sure in what context those will be cropping up; when they do I will let you know). Special thanks to all of those who were responsible for making this happen; I will treasure the memories, the wines, and the insane amount of inside jokes that were added to my already peripatetic personal narrative!

Gizella Cellar

Going Pro with A Go Pro in Tokaj

We go out strong, my friends: in this incarnation, I meet the young and social-media-savvy winemaker László Szilágyi, who hikes me up a steep vineyard, let’s me go a bit crazy with his Go Pro camera, and puts my taste-buds to the test with two of his finest Furmint wines from the Gizella Cellar label.

The wines are excellent… almost as good as the views from the top of the vineyard, and almost as fun as horsing around with a Go Pro.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed the Furmint USA video series (if you enjoyed them a tenth as much as I did making them, we will have accomplished something!).

Checkmate, lushes!

I have very fond memories of filming this week’s episode of my Furmint Adventures. But then, if you can’t recall a beautiful day in Tokaj, eating gourmet fare and drinking Gróf Degenfeld wine at their historic hotel with lovely winemaker Vivien Ujvári (who, incidentally, is into prog rock; for that alone, she is a champion)… well, then you have major, major problems, my friend.

In this vid, we have medieval history, small-production Furmint, crazy-good vittles, a Countess, and… damn, what, do you need any more to get you to watch? C’mon, already!

Furmint Adventures Episode 9: Majoros Estate

Say, riddle me this, Batman: where else are you going to get Hungarian Furmint coverage coupled with quotes from Terminator 2?

Nowhere, beeeeeeach, that’s where!

Join me on the next episode of my Tokaj jaunt as I visit the cellar of Majoros Estate, and introduce you to The Furmintator!
