Matador Etyek Haraszthy foie gras

Foie gras & and 2021 Haraszthy wines on 13 November

In Hungary we celebrate St Martin, the Roman bishop, who was born in Hungary (the town of Szombathely in the west part of the country was named Savaria when our land was part of the Great Roman Empire and was called Pannonia). This is the season of new vintage wines and dishes made of goose – to commemorate the bishop, who, according to the legend was so modest that he hid among the geese when the Roman clerical officer came to appoint him.

Haraszthy Vineyard is situated in Etyek, a stone throw from Budapest, so why not enjoy some fresh air the sight of the beautiful autumn landscape combined with a great meal? Matador, the steak house and restaurant of the estate is not open every day in off-season, but it definitely awaits guests on St Martin’s Day, on 13th November.

Celebrate the vintage with us!
