Bordeaux Blends in Budapest
The 7th ‘Bordói November’ grand tasting awaits red wine lovers on 17 November. Though indigenous varieties are the ones we are mostly looking for in a country, at the same time we must admit the qualities of the renowned international varieties. The so called Bordeaux varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot – and their blends undoubtedly have the potential to give full bodied, velvety, layered impressive wines. In the glamorous halls of Corinthia Hotel Budapest more than 60 wineries will present about 150 wines. The entrance ticket entitles the visitor to taste all the wines.
