Danube river cruises with KNW wines on board
Avalon View, a new luxury boat of Avalon fleet has recently been inaugurated with a cruise from Bratislava to Budapest. The guests could enjoy several wines from renowned Eger estate, Kovács Nimród Winery. The special occasion was the beginning of a beautiful partnership: from now KNW wines are available on the Danube cruises of Avalon fleet.
A Taste of the Danube cruise
Avalon offers 6 different Danube cruises from 4 days to 9 days. A Taste of the Danube cruise is probably the most suitable for connoisseurs, it departs from Budapest and the route is amazing including Melk, the scenery of Umberto Eco’s famous novel, The Name of the Rose. “Cruise through the natural beauty of Austria’s Wachau Valley, past quaint towns and villages—and stops in charming towns and cities of Slovakia and Austria along the way. Sail between two countries on a 58-mile stretch of the Danube that’s shared by Hungary and Slovakia. Explore Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, a dynamic city at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. Visit the Gothic St. Martin’s Cathedral, which served as Hungary’s coronation church during the 16th to 19th centuries. In Melk, you will visit Austria’s majestic Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe’s largest monasteries, where Benedictine monks still stroll within the sacred walls. Sitting high on a bluff, it offers the most breathtaking views of the city, the Danube River, and the Austrian countryside all at once. Conclude your beautiful Danube River cruise in Vienna, Austria.“
From Sky Furmnt to NJK flagship red blend
On board of Avalon fleet travellers can get acquinted with the “Burgundy of Hungary” as Eger is often cited by Nimród Kovács, founder of the winery. Indeed Eger shows many similarities with Burgundy, thus Chardonnay, the main white variety of Burgundy feels good in Eger. KNW was the first winery to introduce bâtonnage in Hungary, and their Chardonnay fascinates the lovers of the variety in every vintage.
