Winter Picnic Etyek 2014

The Picnic series of the New Year will start on 18 January in Etyek. This time the organizers did not attach any specific gastronomic label to the event; winter automatically means mulled wine, heavy red wines and pig-killing diners.
Etyek Picnic 2014
19 locations have been advertised with several surprises: in most of the cellars not only the host will be present, but famous winemakers from other regions will be invited, such as Géza Balla from the Arad-ménes region, Szatmári Cellar from Szigliget, Tiffán Cellar from Villány, the Tőkés Family from Mátra, Lajos Gál, Dávid Cellar and Gróf Butler Winery from Eger, Ferenci Cellar from Szekszárd, Csaba Sebestyén, Tamás Dúzsi and the Maurus Cellar from Mór.

Visitors to the Picnic will have the opportunity to taste wide range of gastronomic offers: diner after the pig-killing with roasted piglet, black pudding, sausages, cracklings, venison sausage, lángos (fried garlic bread) and fruit juices. Sweets will be available to finish off the day; hot chocolate and home made strudels.

We must not forget about the champagnes, because conditions in the Etyek region are excellent to make bubbles.

The champagne in Etyek is special: aromas of green apple and white flowers are influenced by a little bit of lime, which intensifies the taste. Acids are lively, bubbles are small and fine and alcohol does not dominate the medium body of this champagne.
