The 7th Somlói Juhfark (Sheep Tail) Holiday 2022.


Saturday, October, 22. 2022.

Venue: Tornai Winery – 1242 Somló hill – Somlójenő

Somló Veszprém county, on the eastern edge of the Marcal basin, a 435-meter high volcanic mountain stands out from the plains.  Venue: Tornai Winery – 1242 Somló hill – Somlójenő. Nowonder the Juhfark and Somló are a special pair. The unique, volcanic character of the mountain can best be conveyed by Juhfark, and vice versa: the varietal traits characteristic of  Juhfark are best displayed on Somló. The result: an inimitable wine with a complex, mineral flavor. The walking tasting is a special experience, one of the most popular genres of the wine-loving public, where the best wines of several wineries are available at the same time  on the spot.

Be ready to walking tasting superb 27 Juhfark wines from 17 wineries  on October, 22. 2022. The winemakers from Somló, welcome the public  and can taste the best batches of the past years, personally presented by the winemakers. The Somlói Juhfark Holiday will be a special walking tasting in several ways: First of all: it is exclusively about Juhfark. Such a presentation focusing on a single breed can be interesting if the breed is multifaceted. Not only the characteristics of the wine region, the perception of the winemaker handwork. Can sense from the tasting batches and discover the wines of completely different types and characters. Juffark is like that. Second: at this event, not only the wines, but also their makers, the winemakers themselves, will be presented. We can get to know many authentic winemakers, ask questions, talk about the techniques of wine making, the characteristics of wines, taste and re-taste.
And finally: it will be held at Somló, where can enjoy not only the wines, but also the unique environment. Wherever their foot leads the visitors, will find diverse natural beauties, impressive panoramas, well-ordered rows of grapes, wonderful cellars and chapels.
Additional programs and workshops make the walking tasting even more interesting at the Juhfark holiday. The best way to know vineyards of Somló, older vintages and the famous wine regions of the world comparing its wines with each Juhfark wines.
