Hi we are Miklós and Erika and both are wine lovers! I am not only a wine lover but also a wine judge and wine journalist. I am doing this since 2005. I also visited many wine countries and spent some time there such as USA (Oregon), Italy, France, Spain and Israel. I also had my own wine store and was the retail director of the second biggest wine trader company in Hungary. Erika was born in a wine making family in Pest county and she took a main part of her family business. Wine is our passion but to see the whole picture you also have to know the winemakers. Fortunately, we know most of them in person. Telling their stories to you makes this event memorable.
