A. Gere Winery: new menu, gratis hotel night, retro vineyard tour

Gere Winery founded by Attila Gere is worth visiting in itself, for the world famous wines including Solus Merlot and Kopar blend. The estate however also boasts a 4 star wellness hotel, a restaurant called Mandula offering wine dining based on local traditions and may other extras from the grape seed cosmetics to the “retro” vinayard tours with Frici bus.


Mandula Restaurant has recently introduced its new degustation menu with dishes like the mangalitza pork cheek (above in our cover photo) with soybeans, gratin and nutmeg. The wine is paired with Gere Fekete Járdovány, a rare grape varity revived from the extinction by Gere family. Another interesting plate is lamb with ‘lecsó’ (the Hungarian version of ‘ratatouille’), in which the lamb comes from the best lamb breeder from a village called Peterd.

Crocus Hotel is definitely the most stylish place to stay in your Villány visit. The hotel is always on the top list of every guide, the interior is well looked after – two years ago they replaced all the curtains and pillows with the works of Zoltán Varró designer, the owner of Varrodesign. The hotel offers a wide range of spa treatments so that not only our tasting buds, but also our skin can enjoy the blessings of the grape. Plus the staff is excellent: once we were in a difficult situation, pouring rain, heavy suitcases, no taxi – but the sommelier saved us! We are still grateful to him!

Now Crocus Hotel has a special summer offer: 4 nights for the price of 3 nights. The packaage also includes: welcome drink, 4 occasions rich, homemade buffet breakfast, 3 occasions Mandula Menu dinner or lunch, 1 occasion A. Gere Classic wine tasting with 7 wines in the Hotel’s Wine Bar, 1 occasion private Sky Spa jacuzzi use (90 minutes) by appointment in advance, unlimited usage of Wellness & Spa, bath robe, unlimited internet access, parking possibility.
