Stuck on Gilligan’s Island

My wife’s friend’s friend Bernadette declared this Hungarian “Champagne” to be her favorite. I’m inclined not to argue with her so I drank it – a little skeptically since I am a little bit of a wine snob – and I liked the Hungaria. I liked it a lot.  I like it more now that I know the producer is Torley Pezsgopinceszet Kft – whatever that means – because it makes me giggle and fits in with my natural propensity to pursue a high level of foolishness in life.

I like the fact that is says “HUNGARIA” on the neck, just in case you forgot where it came from. Hungaria never tasted so good. Nice mousse, small bubbles and crisp enough to keep me drinking it.  Inexpensive enough to keep my buying it. I can safely say that if I was stuck on Gilligan’s Island with only one wine from Hungary to drink  this would be it.

Köszönet Bernadette és John.
