Furmint Adventures Episode 8: Kvaszinger Winery

Vinted on February 26, 2015 binned in 1WineDude TV, on the road

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 installment of my Tokaj Furmint Adventures, a trip to Kvaszinger Winery (for the whole round-up of FurmintUSA jaunt vids and articles, see 1winedude.com/tag/furmintusa).

A fisherman’s wet dream: Kvaszinger Winery

In this episode, we meet the young but impressive László Kvaszinger, whose passion for taking the family wine business to the next level with dry Furmint saw him give up a finance biz career in Budapest in favor of life of the vine. Also, I attempt to row a boat in the rain, which is almost as comical as watching me try to play basketball. Enjoy!

Oh, and finally – a quick shout out to my friend Elin McCoy, who gave props to dry Furmint and Tokaj in her recent Bloomberg column.

Cheers!

Furmint Adventures Episode 7: Basilicus Winery

Look, ma, I’m in Tokaj!

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 and food as well as wine.

I had a particularly fun time touring their source vineyards (and pretending to make wine barrels), as you’ll see in a few moments.

Cheers!

Furmint Adventures Episode 6: Sauska Winery

Vinted on February 10, 2015 binned in 1WineDude TV, on the road

Peeps! Here’s episode 6 of my Furmint adventures in Tokaj, in which I visit Sauska Winery, and give them grief over their green harvest practices. Ok, so I am sometimes not such a gracious guest. Oh, yeah – I also do a fan dance.

Anyway…

The wines are excellent, and the scenery typically gorgeous, so it’s just another day “at the office.”

Enjoy!
