Thursdays @The Tasting Table

Thursdays @The Tasting Table

Thursdays @The Tasting Table events are when we get to introduce our guests to some of the fascinating people who we cross paths with while exploring the region’s food and wine. We invite them into our open kitchen to cook, or into our tasting room to pour and discuss their wines. Our guest hosts can include chefs, winemakers, authors, sommeliers, photographers, food enthusiasts, or others who have something to share. These casual evenings have somewhat of a speakeasy vibe, with everyone gathering around big communal tables and food served family-style. Wine is poured generously, and the events are all about enjoying great food and wine in the company of people who like to share their passions. Space is limited for each event and advance booking is required.

Note: We are happy to accommodate dietary restrictions, food allergies, and vegetarian substitutes, but we must know in advance! All of our events are always in English. In the case that one of our featured guests does not speak English, everything will be translated. Menus may be changed due to availability of ingredients (though we will always announce changes here).

Price: 9,900 HUF per person (includes all food and drinks)

All guests receive 10% off of all wines purchased at the Tasting Table on the night of the event!

 Winemaker Dinner with Kreinbacher Winery (Somló)

Thursday June 29th, 7pm
Winemaker Dinner with Kreinbacher Winery (Somló)

“These are wines of consequence; demanding and authoritative. The best can age for decades,” writes John Szabo, a Canadian-Hungarian Master Sommelier, about Somló wines in his recently published Volcanic Wines book. Tonight we will taste some of these wines with Kreinbacher Winery, one of Somló’s largest. Kreinbacher was founded in the early 2000s and now own 40 hectares of vineyards on Somló hill (which is a rarity in this region where most producers work on just a few hectares). Somló’s history started four to five million years ago when solidified volcanic lava emerged from the soil of the ancient dried-out Pannonian Sea, creating a basalt hill made of steel-hard volcanic rock. This is today’s Somló hill, which sticks out from the rest of the landscape because of it’s flat cap. Its hillsides are covered with vineyards and small houses, mainly used as weekend houses for the vineyard owners. There are just a handful of permanent residents. In addition to making lovely versions of signature Somló varietals like furmint, juhfark, tramini, and olaszrizling, Kreinbacher has also become well-known for some its wines which are not typical of the region. Its syrah (one of the few reds made on the hill) has been widely praised, and lately Kreinbacher has been in the limelight for its traditional method sparkling wines (made with the help of a French consultant from Champagne). This sparkling wine is a favorite at The Tasting Table, and we are in full agreement (with many others) that it’s probably Hungary’s best sparkling wine. We’ll taste these delicious bubbles, among others. For dinner tonight, Chef Tamás will be highlighting some of our wonderful local cheese with a special cheese menu. Join us to taste these beautiful volcanic wines, and to learn about the Somló region from the perspective of its largest winery.
