Furmint Adventures Episode 4: Paulay Winery

Vinted on January 29, 2015 binned in 1WineDude TV, going pro, on the road

In episode four of my Hungarian jaunt in search of dry Furmint, I visit Paulay Winery and guest house.  Yeah, the sertting is just as pretty as all of the previous Tokaj stops. Feel free to hate me!

The owners of Paulay (the Hudáks, who you will “meet” in the video below), have both a pretty and a pretty interesting site on their hands. First, their guest house is  the former home of the 19th century playwright Ede Paulay, a celebrated figure in Hungarian history. Second, they’ve mirrored the historical connection in their tiny, steep vineyard, by experimenting with some traditional, pre-phylloxera grape varieties. And finally, while they’ve got a typically awesome moldy Hungarian cellar for aging their wines, their soil isn’t typical of the region.

Basically, it’s a wine geek’s Hungarian trifecta!

So… another beautiful landscape with historical vinous significance in Tokaj. I wish that I could tell you that makes this episode special, but I’m pretty sure you’re going to see quite a few more beautiful landscapes with historical significance before this is all over. Enjoy…
