When a wine expert tastes a glass of Somló wine, he/she can almost see in front of him/her the wines and the landscape: the smallest of our historic wine regions, whose reputation rivals that of Tokaj’s. The Somló Hill stands out from the landscape with its unmatched beauty and its volcanic cone directs your attention to itself from afar. The soil rich in basalt and the micro-climate are ideal for the excellent white wine varieties growing here: Furmint, Hárslevelű, Riesling and Juhfark, the specialty of Somló. Well, put your boots on, because a number of cosy press houses and small wine cellars among the vineyards await you to discover them. A medieval castle ruin can be found on the wooded precipitous edge of the monadnock and its gorgeous sight takes your imagination back to bygone centuries. A fantastic panorama lies in front of you from the top of the look-out tower located on the peak.
