Festive music and wine: All that jazz!

16 Dec 2017 :11 PM

Gyémánt László All that jazzMany of us wish to calm down, have a rest and forget about the year-long fatigue in the company of our beloved family now, that Christmas is approaching. Festive mood can be heightened by some calming music and a glass of premium wine, which pull us out of the everyday swirl. The unique lots originating from the excellent Monopole terroirs of the Kovács Nimród Winery of Eger refer in their name to all that can offer pleasure and creative entertainment at the same time: All that jazz.

The series named All that jazz salutes different worlds as Kovács Nimród sees it; he received the opportunities and first successes from the American continent, while his homeland has offered him the chance to show the world what the Eger wine region is capable of with the proper attitude and expertise. Art, or to be more exact, the paintings of László Gyémánt (his painting especially, titled as All that jazz inspired the wine family) and music lift the soul and make the soul forget about the everyday tasks; and a beautiful wine brings it even closer to the celebrated transcendence around Christmas time.

Eger the Hungarian Burgundy

26 Jun 2017 :08 PM

The native land of chardonnay and pinot noir
The Eger wine region resembles Burgundy, which is considered to be the best one in the world in many respects: at both places you can make top quality red and white wines, as the climate conditions are very similar; and what is more, the most excellent French top wines are reflected in the style and vinification technology of the wines of the Kovács Nimród Winery. According to the experts, the “harvest” of the two KNW terroirs of Eger (Nyilasmár and Nagyfai) is the spitting image of the fruitage of the Burgundian Pouilly-Fuissé and Musigny prestige terroirs.
