Winetrain to Balatonlelle

Winetrain to Balatonlelle to Garamvári sparkling wine cellar

Travel, Gastronomy and Culture… All this three belong to our new service, to the Winetrain projekt.

With our Winetrain we visit the foremost wine country of Hungary traveling by Árpád rail car.

We get a taste of the region’s culture, wines and history.

Balatonboglár Wine Region

Similar to the other wine regions around Lake Balaton, the region’s microclimate is determined by the proximity of the large body of water. Warm summers and mild, snowy winters create ideal growing conditions for the local vineyards along the south shore of Lake Balaton. Full bodied whites and champagne dominate in the Balatonboglár wine region, although red grapes, especially Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, have played an increasing role lately. The Romans were the first to plant grapevines in the region over 2000 years ago.

Grape Varieties

Olaszrizling (Italian Riesling) is the dominant grape of the region, followed by Chardonnay and Sárgamuskotály (Yellow Muscat).

Balatonboglár Wines

Notable wines include: Chardonnay, Légli Olaszrizling, Boglári Tramini, Királyleányka and ’BB’ champagnes.

Balatonboglár Wineries
Garamvárii, Légli(named the national ‘Winemaker of the year’ in 2010)
