Cellar walk under Szentendre
Viticulture has had centuries of tradition in Szentendre. Before the beginning of the phyloxera epidemic of 1882, the town was famous for its high quality wines both in Hungary and abroad. And famous wines needed expert storing: this is how the ten kilometers long system of cellars (intact to this day) came to be. It speaks volumes of the size and scope of winemaking in the days of yore. Although part of this system got filled in or completely abandoned over the past centurywe are lucky to say that more than enough of it remained for us to discover together. The tour across and below the town will not only treat our eyes and minds, but also out taste buds, as it will be complemented by wine tasting. Wines for this will be supplied by the local Kőhegybor Winery, whose owners made it their mission to wake the once flourishing Szentendrean viticulture from its 130-years long slumber.
