Furmint Proves Its Pairability With Any Cuisine

A high-end Italian seafood restaurant in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip might seem an unlikely place for wine-loving Hungarians to meet. Yet the team from Vinum Tokaj International and the Szent Tamás Winery—makers of their namesake label and MÁD Dry Furmint—proved there are exceptions to that rule when they recently convened at Costa di Mare in the Wynn Las Vegas.

Costa di Mare’s Wine Manager, Miklós Katona, a native Hungarian and Advanced Sommelier, moved to the U.S. 15 years ago—eight of which he’s spent with the Wynn. He’s been carrying Hungarian wines on Costa di Mare’s wine list for four years now and is a passionate proponent of Hungarian dry Furmint, which has only begun to make a splash in the United States in the past year or so.

There is an impressive attention directed to the region, a huge wipe in marketing and promotion delivered by Vinum Tokaj International’s promotional campaigns launched on the North American market. Attila Balla and Enikő Magyar, market and brand builders of Furmint aim to translate the history, the hundred years of viticultural experience and outstanding quality of the new style dry Tokaj wines to the US public.

“ I have never experienced such a strong, continuous and focused presence of the Hungarian wines promotion in the U.S. so far” – Katona added and he considers that we are living a great momentum for the Tokaj Region and its wines that he calls to be the new golden age of Tokaj.

The full story will be published in the SOMM Journal Magazine’s December issue.
