If your looking to learn more about Hungarian or Central European wines, here’s your chance to do it. The following below is a list of workshops and events that are happening this fall. Please contact the event organizers directly for more information or to register.
Central Europe Jewels
Explore indigenous wines of Central Europe with Stetson Robbins of Blue Danube Wine Company. Try the terroir-driven dry and sweet Furmint grape of Tokaji, Hungary; an appellation older than Bordeaux. Explore the spicy, distinctive Zinfandel related Plavac Mali from the ocean-facing vineyards of Southern Croatia. And taste small production Slovenian wines from family producers farming and making wine in an ancient region the Romans fought wars over. The grapes may be unpro- nounceable but the wines are delicious. Come see for yourself and get a great introduction to wines that are still obscure and undiscovered treasures for so many.
