Chill or Buzz in Villány on 3–5 May

Festival weekend at several wineries

During the upcoming weekend several wineries will offer diverse programs in Villány wine region, Gere Tamás & Winery offers one of the most diverse programs on Saturday, on the 4th of May: creative nursery for the kids in the morning, guided tasting of treasures from the depth of the cellar in the afternoon, home-made burgers and grilled dishes all day, live music in the evening. Plus, when you have had enough of the “buzz” of the festival, you can chill in the cosy rooms of Diófa Pension, managed by Gere Tamás & Zsolt Winery.

A little language lesson

‘Borzsongás’ is an annual festival in Villány, always at the beginning of May, when nature begins to ‘buzz’, people enjoy doing picnics, the air is vibrant, joy is all around – this is what ‘zsongás’, the second part of the name of the event means. More precisely, you can hear ‘zsongás’ in a spring meadow full of flowers and bees. The first part, ‘bor’ means ‘wine’, obviously, since in Villány, in our southernmost wine region everything is connected to wine.

– Harvest took place at the end of September.
– After destemming the juice was placed in stainless steel tank, fermentation took place under controlled temperature. The wine spent a few weeks on fine lees.
– Bottled in April, 4000 bottles were made.
– Alcohol: 13.6%
– Acidity: 5.5 g/l
– Residual sugar: 1.1 g/l
– Description: Clear, pale pink colour. Intense nose with surprisingly white wine character. Thanks to the P9 Clone the nose and the palate are spicier than in case of many other Kadarka wines. Abundant in floral notes, the red berry fruits stay in the background. Pleasant, refreshing acidity, while the long finish is the icing on the cake. A crispy, true summer wine.
