Hike with ’Bikavér’ this Saturday!

As we recommended earlier, Bikavér Borongoló’ (something like ’Bull’s Blood Wandering around tour’) a unique tour will take place this Saturday(11 May) in Szekszárd wine region. During the tour visitors will have a chance to taste Bikavér wines from all the participating wineries. This year 7 wineries will host the event, and they will also host some (3) guest wineries, thus altogether „hikers” will have a chance to taste 20 Bikavér wines from 10 wineries. Tickets should be purchased in advance, the price is 14.000 HUF (44 euros) and it contains all the Bikavér samples, home made pub grub at every cellar plus bus transfer. Vesztergombi Cellar is one of the hosting wineries, their beautiful stone winery building is worth seeing anyways, and their Vesztergombi Bikavér 2015 will be the icing on the cake. The fruit for this Bikavér comes from four precious vineyards (Szarvas crest, Bodzás, Kerékhegy, Hidaspetre). As for the blend, Kékfrankos gives the body and backbone of the wine, Cabernet Sauvignon adds spiciness and depth, Merlot is responsible for the soft and gentle character while Kadarka provides its soul. The winery has made Bikavér since 1991 with more or less the same proportion of the varieties. The first Bikavér was released in 1993, the year when Ferenc Vesztergombi was awarded the prestigious title “Winemaker of the Year”.
