For the July edition of Winemaker Saturdays, we have not one but two winemakers coming to London.
Attila Homonna retrained as a winemaker after a career in marketing and advertising, and a brief stint working as a DJ in New York. Attila’s tiny estate in the Hungarian village of Erdőbénye, Tokaj is the definition of boutique winery - producing a mere 3,000 to 5,000 bottles a year. The quantity might be tiny, but the quality is most certainly outstanding. Attila’s 3 hectares of vines grow in the Határi, Csáky and Rány vineyards - some of the best sites in the villages of Erdőbénye and Olasziszka.
After studying wine in the Agronomic school of Angers, Pierre traveled the world to learn about the different processes and made wine in Portugal, NZ, Bordeaux, and Hungary. When we think of Pierre and his micro winery in Faye d'Anjou, Loire, we see a deep thinker and a genuine farmer. His wines, which always come with small poems and hand drawn labels, are consistently elegant and meditative.
2-5pm, 27 July – mark you calendar, set your reminder – don't miss out on tasting with these two talented young winemakers!
