On Friday, February 22, 2019 the WineNet invited guests to spend at a romantic environment, a panoramic view of Vajdahunyad Castle (District, XIV., 6. Olof Palme promenade – Budapest) in front  Budapest’s huge ice rink and gastronomic specialties at the City Park Café to enjoy the Season of Carnival along with the selected wines also available at the WineNet – Hungary.

The WineNet decided to organizing a gathering with invited guest to chase away winter connected  in the company of fine wines. Wine is one of the best expressions of the human soul. Everything is manifested in the wine itself. Wine has heart, soul, desires, but even shows how lovable it can be. Saying farewell to the season of winter is the best way to dress in the company of good wine! Taste of delicious finger food were served as well.

The noisy carnival celebrations were brought about by an ancient belief that at the end of winter, when the days are shorter and the nights are longer, the Sun loses power and evil spirits come to life. They tried to banish merriment, carnival costume parade, puppet witch burning.

Carnival time saying here I am!  Upon arrival many turned to the roulette table.  Unique wine roulette. The tasting starts with a welcome drink and a quick overview of the basic tastings. At the „ Blind Tasting” the wines were dressed in carnival costume. Participants to join the play laid their betting medals on the roulette table, of course after tasting a wine, tips could be made regarding … from which wine region or the vineyard,  the wine type, flavor characteristics, wine vintage year, which fruit flavors  dominate can be discovered. During the game, the players stood around the table. Players taste 6 items at the wine tasting.

The main protagonist of the evening were: Babarczi Vineyard and Cellar, Bogdán Estate, Dubicz Winery, Font Winery, Gróf Degenfeld Winery, Winery of Jenő Istvándy, Winery of Tamás Lelovits, Wine House of Molnár, Recas Winery, Wine Cellar of Szentpéteri.

At the wine tasting, wine makers gave in-depth, related to their experiences the background of their wines. Mentioning a couple:

Szentpéteri wine cellar.  At Municipality region defines typically the wine’s purity and freshness. In addition to a light and elegant appearance of elder and vine flowers and scent surprised when tasting like a bunch of heavenly grapes.Very harmonious acidity of the wine. Unique fragrances. Mediterranean-style rosé (Mediterranean fragrances, in addition to the Mediterranean fruit and blackberry, red currant aromas complex and unique appearance is exciting wine). During the tasting were: Kadarka 2017, Néró rosé selection 2018, Kékfrankos Rosé 2018, Olaszrizling Selection 2018. it is undeniable that there are Gold and Silver medals received at several international competitions by the wines of Szentpéteri wine cellar.

Tamás Lelovits  wine country are mainly producing dry red. Villány has created a brand with the wine region, which can only be 100% pure, premium quality Cabernet Franc. Extreme crop limitation for raw material: up to 80-90 dkg of grape per capital. It was bottled after 18 months of barrel maturation for the first time. Villányi Franc is the embodiment of elegance and harmony. The Villány Rosé Curvée 2018 was pretty popular at the wine tasting.

Dubicz Winery lays at the territory Mátra that is considered as Hungary’s second largest wine region. The Southern slopes of Mátra already existed in the Middle Ages. The Kékfrankos Rosé 2018 fragrance reminds of red fruits like raspberry, red currant. Tight structure, excellent crispy acidity, little frisky CO2, it is excellent to drink with soda water as well.
