Furmint Adventures Episode 10: Gróf Degenfeld Winery

Gróf Degenfeld Winery

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!

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!

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).

Kvaszinger Winery

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!
