Last but not least here is a  little teaser whilst being at the SIRHA,  to stop by these other superb exhibitors and taste their selection of wonderful food, wines and the amazing taste of Italian coffee and ice-creams.

Mihály Mezei, the owner of wineries and champagne factory stands at the surroundings area of Tibolddaróc and Bükkalja. It is his family owned winery. These wines are rich, slightly mineral aroma. Have a small current, plum and spices. On the palate it is rich, warm, mellow and easy to drink. Cannot be missed to taste on the spot the semi-sweet red Cuveé ... which is a special composition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Portuguese. Sufficiently concentrated, very well-made wine.

Fourteen different in „heavy” taste and brew of beers are awaiting on the tap from the Czech Republic at the MAGISTR booth … as their slogan says: „It’s time to cognize a mistery”.

Coffee lovers , here you go … The Caffé Perté Company has been present on the Hungarian market since 1996. The basic company exists in Modena, Italy and was founded in 1974.  The Perté caffè opened their coffee roasting plant of European standard at  Budaörs – Hungary in 2002. The company produces 5 different types of coffee with and without caffeine using the most modern technology, based on old Italian family recipes. Try it when your rolling by the booths, surely you will find a little Italy in the taste. At the Caffé Perté booth a selection of sparkling wines are out on display.
