Furmint Day!!!! – Wednesday, February 1st

furmint day 2What could be better than Furmint Day?  Wait, what’s that?  What is Furmint?  Ahhhh, good question.

Furmint is a white grape indigenous to Hungary.  It has traditionally been one of the two primary grapes in Tokaji (which used to be known as Tokay, sometimes Royal Tokay).   Typically this is a sweet dessert wine, anywhere from slightly sweet to very sweet.  But Furmint also makes an excellent dry white wine.

We like Furmint, and you can read a review we did on one by clicking here.  We also think this entire concept is kind of fun, so we are planning to open a bottle of Furmint on February 1st.  Here are a few fact on the day and the grape:

When did Furmint Day start? – that would be on February 1st, as this will be the first one.

Who Started Furmint Day? – some person in Hungary we do not know.

Why Did They Start Frumint Day? – we assume to raise awareness and eventually generate sales.  We support that as we like Furmint.Furmint Day

You can learn more about this at https://www.furmintday.com/#en/join-us.  If you like the idea, like Furmint, like trying new wines or any combination of these then open a bottle on Wednesday and Tweet to #furmintday.  We’ll be doing exactly that, although we have to go find a bottle.  It’s not something every wine shop carries.

Maybe in a few years it will be though, and Furmint Day will be widely celebrated.

Stranger things have happened.

A votre sante!
