The twelfth grand tasting Badacsony Wines where wine lovers place to be!

Lake Balaton cannot be brought to Budapest, but the wine producers from that region could come to Budapest the Capital of Hungary to introduce their latest and well known wines to the visitors coming to get to know by tastings.

Lake Balaton Regional TDM Association hand-in-hand with the Badacsony regional winemakers and cellars organizined the annual wine tasting festival this year as well at the New York Cafe. The Badacsony wine-makers and tourism providers from the region have had been boosting again the fiesta atmosphere in Budapest.

The Kéknyelű Magic Wines from the Vulcan’s landscapes this year played a major role … A little bit about the Badacsony Region … Badacsony wine region, stands on volcano that has been extinct for 2.5 million years, whose soil is a mixture of clay, lime and sand found at the bottom of the Pannonian Sea with different versions of volcanic basalt, its micro climate is a mixture of cool continental and hot Mediterranean climates, in short, an ideal paradise environment for grapes.

The first two hours of the tasting were for journalists and invited guests, so it was still easy to get to everyone, but at 4 in the afternoon the gates were opened to the public and fans of Badacsony wines stormed the counters. It’s true that I didn’t stay until the end of the meeting, but while I was present, the event took place in a civilized manner, and the majority of the guests really came to the venue due to genuine interest and not “I could have a drink”. Several came with a specific goal and proceeded according to a pre-drawn plan, others targeted familiar wineries, and still others specifically hunted for new faces. It was refreshing to see people sharing their tasting experiences and already going to places recommended by others.

Let’s see a couple of wineries that hit the road definitely to mention:

They are convinced that creating something valuable and unique can only be done based on well-founded, in-depth expertise, with openness and creativity. They found the right raw material for this in the noble and special Kéknyelű. Their mission is to discover the secrets of Kéknyelű, which will open up new horizons for the wine region.

One of the headlines was expressed by Ildikó Kiss KárolynéFounder of the Value and Quality Grand Prize Contest said „Q”.: “It is common knowledge that businesses do not only create financial value. Their development and innovation potential can therefore not only be evaluated from an economic point of view, but we must also recognize their social and community role. The Quality Certification with Trademarks goes back more than a quarter of a century. The predecessor of the Value and Quality Grand Prix Certification Trademark, the Hungarian Product Grand Prix Certification Trademark, was launched in the spring of 1998. In 2018, this trademark was extended to the entire Carpathian region, followed by the modern Value and Quality Grand Prix Certification Trademark, which can also be introduced internationally.”

The founder of the Value and Quality Grand Prize Competition continued: „Q.”: “It is common knowledge that businesses do not only create financial value. Their development and innovation potential can therefore not only be evaluated from an economic point of view, but we must also recognize their social and community role. Quality certification with trademarks goes back more than a quarter of a century. The predecessor of the Value and Quality Grand Prix Certification Trademark, the Hungarian Product Grand Prix Certification Trademark, was launched in the spring of 1998. In 2018 trademark was extended to the entire Carpathian region, followed by the modern Value and Quality Grand Prix Certification Trademark, which can also be introduced internationally.

Dr. János Latorcai – Vice-president of the Parliament and the main patron of the event – said „Q”.: „We all experience and feel that something is changing in our world. More and more people believe that regardless of the outcome of the war, fundamental changes will occur in the international economic and political system, many are already talking about the reversal of globalization. It is difficult to predict how profound all these changes will be, but it is certain that the capacity for self-sufficiency will be appreciated, and this is impossible without innovative domestic enterprises. Successful support programs must therefore be continued. The purpose of the Value and Quality Grand Prize Tender System is to recognize the high quality level of goods and services that qualify for the tender, to promote the production of goods of outstanding quality and high added intellectual value that are competitive on the international market, and to encourage the development of services.

Thus, it gives me great pleasure that since 2016, the products of several foreign Hungarian entrepreneurs have also been among the award winners. This is a great example of the quality and togetherness that Hungarians represent with their work in the Carpathian Basin, and even worldwide. I am confident that in the spirit of our national unity and the cross-border cooperation of Hungarian entrepreneurs, this year we will once again be able to welcome Hungarian applicants from abroad, with whom we can raise our region together as one nation.”

Sándor Farkas– Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Agriculture put it following regarding the application. “Q”.: “During the pandemic, we experienced how vulnerable nations are to each other in today’s globalized world, and within them, we humans. The war further increased this and at the same time proved that the complete abandonment of self-determination and self-sufficiency of nations means a vulnerability that no responsible leadership of any country can afford.”
