Furmint February tasting – London

February 21 @ 11:00 am - 5:30 pm

Following on from their great success promoting Hungary’s flagship grape variety over the last few years, Wines of Hungary UK, is once again organising a Furmint tasting for the trade and media.

Over 150 sparkling, dry and sweet Furmint wines from 35 producers will be available to taste – some of which are seeking representation in the UK. Producers include Royal Tokaji, Szepsy, Barta, Patricius, Zsirai, Dereszla, Tokaj Hetszolo, Grand Tokaj, Disznoko, Tokaj Nobilis, Sanzon Tokaj, Pajzos, Gizella, Kolonics and Gilvesy.  This year, ten new producers will be in attendance showing Furmint (and a couple of their friends) from Tokaj, Somlo, Balaton and Eger wine regions.

To keep numbers COVID-safe, Wines of Hungary will hold two sessions (with a maximum number at each) and encourage members of the trade and media to register in advance for a specific session.

Session 1: 11am-2pm

Session 2: 2.30-5.30pm


Two masterclasses will take place:

·         11.30am – Furmint and Terroir, focus on single vineyards – Dr Caroline Gilby MW;

·         2pm – Sparkling Furmint, introducing Furmint bubbles – Dr Orsi Szentkiralyi


If you would like to sign up to attend one of the masterclasses, please email with your name, role and company, clearly stating which masterclass you would like to attend, and we will add your name to the list. Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
