Portraits from the Szekszard Wine Festival

 

An opportunity to sample the excellent wines of Szekszard and enjoy traditional Hungarian merrymaking to the sound of the hurdy gurdy, an instrument which has been playing at fairs all over Europe for the past thousand years.

I was delighted to be introduced to Csilla Sebestyen of the highly regarded Sebestyen winery in the Szekszard region.  http://sebestyen-szekszard.hu/en/boraink/ She is an experienced sommelier who worked at the Michelin two star Andrew Fairlie Restaurant at the Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland for five years.  I am hoping to find a suitable venue for a memorable wine tasting event in Tunbridge Wells where Csilla can guide us through some interesting Hungarian wines and dispel some misconceptions.  That will be one for the diary!
