DŰLŐngélő Wine Tours in Somló

DŰLŐngélő (tottering) wine tours include 2-3 hour long 2-3 wine cellar visits for groups during the whole year.

A great amount of family cellars await for wine lovers in the Northern and Western side of the Somló Mountain, too. There is an opportunity, at an agreed date in advance, to get acquainted with local wines, and to listen to the wine growers’ tales. From our program snacks and colorful programs cannot be missing.

Cellars welcome 10 to 30 people.

Groups with more people drink comfortably in a crop rotation.

We drink outstanding, mostly cask ripened Somló wines, made of Italian Riesling or other kind. We often taste the “Somlai”, cuvée wine of Somló, which characteristic production site recalls the historical times.

The Somló Mountain map indicates cellar GPS coordinates and wine makers' contacts.

These snacks taste great with the wines of Somló: greaves, cheese, hot scones, bread and dripping with purple onion.

Personal Stories

We talk about Somló’s cultural, historical, and geographical things to know spiced with the personal stories of the wine growers.

Experiences

Wine growers usually do the grape growing and wine making with the help of their family, and sometimes with day labourers, perhaps they do it alone by themselves. We get to know a lot about the ins and outs of winemaking.

Wine tastings usually are followed by singing Hungarian melodies and cellars organize other programs, tool. These are, for example, cask dancing, wine suck competition, or the wine cask roll competition.

How much does                     wine tour cost?
