Wine and Botanical Garden

Last weeks the Carpathian Basin was transformed to a hot cabin, with 38-40 dergree and we try to cool ourselves nearby water…

Lake Balaton is the “Hungarian Sea” which is one of the best place for that purpose. So we start our tour on the north coast, and between swimming and sunbathing, visited some biological and gastronomy attractions. Folly Botanical Garden is a fourth generation arboretum, and winery also, on Badacsonyörs. Badacsony is the wine region, what about i write in earlier posts. Vulcanic soil, special microclimate because of the lake, and tradtional varieties! On the pics you see a light white wine, called Budai zöld (local variety) what is gift for the visitors. On the background is the vineyard from which it comes. The wine is elegant, definite, but enough light in the hot Sunday afternoon.

Huge cedars, the air is filled with resin scent, the sound of cicadas and the view is amazing.

Can not miss nature lovers from bucket list!
