Wine Tasting: exploits of Attila the Hun

Attila the Hun!

Attila was king of the Huns from 434-453 AD and ruled over a pretty large empire between that of the Romans (to the West) and Byzantium (to the East). He was feared throughout the land, but was he a masterful militarian and astute diplomat?  Or just a rapacious brigand?

Let’s find out! We’ll visit his home in the Hungarian Plains (sampling from Somlo) and the start of his Balkan rampage in Moesia (Serbian wine!). We’ll also join his foray into Pannonia (and the Niederösterreich vineyards), past Aquilaeia (to Lombardy!), and towards Aurelianum (with a stop in Reims for some champagne…).

We’ll sample these five wines:

  • Champagne Dom Caudron Epicurienne Vielles Vignes Meunier France NV
  • Fekete Juhfark Somlo Hungary 2011
  • Stift Klosterneuberg St Laurent Austria 2013
  • Vino Budimir Triada Serbia 2008
  • Martilde Bonarda DOC Lombardy Italy 2013

This tasting will be led by Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and our Wining Archaeologist.  Let her guide you through 5 wines, exploring culture and landmarks along the way.
