Gold Medals for Eger Wines in the US

21 Jan 2016 :36 PM

20150916csucstalalkozo-2015-bor-szolo15We got the best news yesterday, 5 of our wines – including our grand cru Nagy Eged wines – were awarded with gold medals at one of the most acknowledged American wine comeptition, at the Chicago Beverage Testing Institute. We are especially proud for getting 93 points for our 2011 vintage Syrah, not only beacuse it proves our earlier assumption that Eger can serve as a true home for this international varietal, but because no European Syrah has ever before scored so high.
