Szia and jo reggelt! (nine words and counting after two weeks, ha!)
I've had a lot of long chats with the tourist office here in Pécs and they've been giving me some great ideas for articles for my "ongoing gastro/wine discoveries" (which will also include--we think as an interesting necessity--gastro/production/etc changes post-communism) in mostly southern/sw/se Hungary. I'm thinking this weekend I'll go to "cellar row" and do some chatting with the vintners if they're around--it's like a 40 minute easy train ride to Villany and the place just west of it, where there's a cute hotel (Hotel Cabernet, love the name!) that has a couple pairing programs that look interesting.
However, what I'd like to know from everyone is what places--the small-town, low production but awesome, gram's still cooking in the kitchen of the local little cafe--that you'd recommend or have found (accessible by train or bus as I have no car). I've met a couple people who are interested in going to these places with me to serve as interpreter, so that's a help.
For the moment I'd like to concentrate on the southern/se/sw area. Hungary (and Eastern Europe itself) has been largely "passed over" without realizing what gastro/wine gems there are here!
