Wine amphora is not a craze

Wine stored in amphoras is not a craze, but a tradition with a history of 8 thousand years. It originates in Giorgia, the cradle of viticulture. The historians established that were actually the Georgians the first to start producing wine, the tradition that was later taken by the Ancient Greeks . >

Fromenteau

Pinot Gris was already known in the Middle Ages in the Burgundy region ( France), probably under the name of Fromenteau. From there it spread to Switzerland; in 1300 it reached Hungary (vineyards over Lake Balaton were planted by Cistercian monks, that is why in Hungary Pinot Gris is called szűrkebarát - "grey monk"). At the end of the 16th century it got the name Rulander after the w ine merchant J. S. Ruland from Speyer (Germany),who brought the grapevine from France to Pfalz region in 1711. >

Krotegin ''under the bell''

In winter time, when there is time for "koline" (homemade sausages), we offer homemade meat products. Krotegin (cotechino) is a type of sausage, typical homemade kožarica (made with pork skin). Our specialty is that we make it in a form of salami. The meat is minced more finely than for a sausage and it's a bit spicy. We put it in the pot, add potatoes, carrots and some leek and cover everything with a bell- shaped lid . >
