Spooky, haunted new cellars. And perky white wines!  (image: FurmintUSA.com)

The latest episode of my Hungarian Furmint Adventures is ready to temporarily distract you from holiday shopping, and make you thirsty.

In this episode, I’m joined by Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant’s Peter Granoff, who makes a comical appearance and adds a bit of spot-on, Master-Somm-infused tasting commentary on the Furmint wines of Szent Donát Winery. Another twist: this time, we’re on the shores of the gorgeous Lake Balaton in Csopak; so we’re delving into the burgeoning world of Furmint beyond the hamlet of Tokaj.

Oh, yeah – the wines are pretty damn good, too!

    Hi Joe, fantastic video on a fantastic winery. We visited last year summer and not only is the wine amazing, but the food is a real treat too and to top it off the views over Lake Balaton are stunning! Job well done. Great! Thx, Elwin

        Hi Joe, could I use your videos on my website on Hungarian wine? Of course with reference to you and your site? I am sure many people would like to see them!

          Hi Elwin – those are the property of FurmintUSA, but I think they’re freely embed-able.
