The cultural landscape of
Tokaj has a long tradition of producing wine in this region of low hills and
river valleys. The many vineyards, farms, villages and small towns, with their
historic networks of deep wine cellars and underground paths, is an example of
the history of the famous Tokaj wines, the quality which has been strictly
enforced for nearly 300 years. On this short break you will discover these
historic towns and wine routes with a private local guide. Along the way you
will get a chance to visit wineries for a sample.
Thummerer Cellar is an
excellent wine-growing in Eger wine-area. They have won several national prize
with their wines. The program
begins with visiting 3 cellar branches, while the visitors
see the life of an operating winery. You can follow the life of the wine
from the arriving of the grapes to the filling of the bottles. Visitors can buy
wine in the cellar and taste wine directly from the casks.
After the Turkish occupation
Fenessy Gyorgy returned to Eger, and he bought two lands in the civil town. He
started to build a palace from stones, which were picked out from the hill
behind the lands. In that way a huge cellar system was formed, where the tithe
of the wines were stored. The cellar system was reached under the town from Gate
Hatvan to Gate Rac through 3 km. After the nationalization in 1947. the cellar
system wasn't in use, its condition was getting worse.
the middle of the 80-ies it was strengthen by ferroconcrete construction, the
very dangerous parts were filled in. But it was a big fault that they didn't
insulate the tunnel system against rain, therefore we can find stalactite and
stalagmite because of the oozing ground water and lime of the stones. The town
under the town can be found if we pass Szechenyi Street through the
Archbishop-yard, behind the Archbishop's palace.
