Description Reviews

According to legend, the name originates from the Turkish invasion of Eger from around 1552. A Hungarian red wine that will blow you away - concentrated and with dark colour it has a core of dark, almost tarry fruit, elegant red cherry aromas, lively acidity and a tight tannic structure. Egri Bikaver ('Bull's Blood of Eger') is Hungary's most famous red wine. It comes from the Eger wine region of northern Hungary. To motivate and support the small group of Hungarian soldiers during the Siege of Eger castle they were served delicious food and a lot of red wine. Among the Turkish soldiers it was rumored that bull's blood was mixed into the red wine, as otherwise the strength and firm resistance of the town and castle of Eger could not be explained. Finally the enemy gave up.
