Event Details


Though Tokaj is famed for its sweet wines, but it’s a region with more intricacies than practically any other region in the world, and is becoming increasingly appreciated for its dry furmints. Hajni Prácser, from Erzsébet Pince, is one of the best people from Tokaj to explain these layers of detail, which have been evolving over centuries. Erzsébet is one of Tokaj’s leading small wineries. It’s a true family-affair, run by Hajni, her brother (Miki), and their parents. It also doesn’t hurt that Hajni’s husband is a Master of Wine and a Master Sommelier, who helps behind the scenes. While Hajni sells the wine, Miki is busy in the mould-covered cellar making the wine, and their parents (Miklós Sr. and Erzsébet) reign over the vineyards. Both siblings are well-traveled, but decided to remain in their hometown to focus on making top-notch wine and build the family business. Hajni will present a selection of her family’s wines (ranging from dry to sweet), while chef Tamás prepares a meal to complement these extraordinary volcanic wines. Erzsébet Pince is located in the center of Tokaj, in an 18th century building which once belonged to a Russian wine merchant. Their wonderful cellar is a magical place, filled with bottles in all shades of gold. Hajni is an exceptional storyteller who is talented at converting wine drinkers to Tokaj lovers. She’ll introduce the region and the terroir, while telling us her family’s story and explaining the winemaking process in Tokaj, including all of the aspects that make it so unique in the world of wine.

Thursdays @The Tasting Table —This is when we get to introduce some of the fascinating people who we cross paths with while exploring the region’s food and wine. We invite them into our open kitchen to cook, or into our tasting room to share their wines. Our guest hosts can include chefs, winemakers, authors, sommeliers, photographers, food enthusiasts, or others who are doing fascinating things in the food and wine world. At these casual evenings, with somewhat of a speakeasy vibe, everyone gathers around our two big communal tables. Tamás (our chef) prepares the meals and food is served family-style. Wine is poured generously. These Thursday evenings are all about enjoying great food, wine, and company.
