Tamás Borbély – The Riesling King
In Hungary, when we speak about “Rizling”, usually we do not mean Rhine Riesling, but another grape variety called Olaszrizling. This grape (also known as Welshriesling or Grasevina) is not a relative of Rhine Riesling, it is an absolutely different grape. Olaszrizling is very important around Lake Balaton, the community wine called BalatonBor is always a fresh, easy drinking, fruity Olaszrizling wine.
Tamás Borbély, the youngest holder of the prestigious title Winemaker of the Year, is passionate about the variety. Apart from the fresh BalatonBor, he makes single vineyard, barrel aged Olaszrizling from Bács hill, another one called Karós Olaszrizling Limited Selection, and even a Late Harvest Olaszrizling.
Stay at Borbély guest house and enjoy the landscape of volcanic mountains
The guest house is suitable for friends or families up to 10 people. The house has 3 rooms with French bed, 1 room with twin beds, 2 bathrooms, a large, well-equipped kitchen with dining room and living room.
