Furmint Forever
Posted by Gábor Bánfalvi on 31 January, 2017 in Drink ,Events ,Explore ,

February in Hungary is long, grey, cold, wet, and gloomy. But for the past eight years at least we’ve had furmint to look forward to in February! Furmint Február (“Furmint February”) is a series of events, including a grand tasting in Budapest, dedicated to promoting this grape varietal which is so important in Hungary. This year the festivities are going international, with the debut of International Furmint Day on February 1st. If it was up to me, I’d make furmint the most widely planted white grape in Hungary. It’s already the signature grape in Tokaj and Somló (along with juhfark and olaszrizling in Somló). Sporadically (but increasingly) you can find some great furmints in Northern Balaton and Eger. I’m hoping to see much more of that all over the country because this grape—if done right—could be Hungary’s flagship wine. There’s no other grape that can make such complex sweet wines, consistently delicious easy-drinking dry wines, and full-bodied single vineyard terroir-driven wines.

Food Truck Show Budapest

Get ready for some serious mobile munching, as Hungary’s leading food trucks join forces and roll out their culinary creations at the Dürer Garden’s Picnic Park during this three-day food show. Expect all the forerunners (think Zing Burger, Pasta Station, and Berlin Canteen) as well as some fresh newcomers such as S’nwich Chef (who recently welcomed chef Viktor Segal to their team) and the barbeque creations of Befaló Bill. The fare will range from gourmet gazpacho to grilled cheese, burgers to burritos, cupcakes to caffeinated drinks, and fresh pastries to pulled mangalica pork sandwiches from an on-site smoker.

The Etyeki Picnic

Talk and Wine Tasting with Winemaker Tamás Dusóckzy from Tokaj
Thursday April 2 (7pm)

Dusóckzy is a fascinating man who grew up in Mád, Tokaj, but left the country as a teenager, became a physicist, and lived in Switzerland and the US. After retiring in the early 1990s, Dusóckzy moved back to Hungary with the intention of bringing the family’s old wine estate in Tokaj back to life. He partnered with Mihály Habsburg to start a five-hectare vineyard, and he is a founding member of the Confrerie de Tokaj, the association of Tokaj wine knights. His latest initiative is building a memorial at the synagogue in Mád to honor the Jewish winemakers and merchants who were killed in the Holocaust, and making them posthumous members of the Confrerie de Tokaj. Dusóckzy is not only a winemaker and a witness to Hungary’s tragic 20th-century history, but he is a fascinating storyteller. During the discussion he will share five of his traditional-style Tokaji wines with us, as he shares his memories. The evening will include a tasting of five wines from Dusóckzy’s winery and generous platters of Hungarian-style Tapas.
