Friends of EDI Hello again!
Thank you to Blackhawk Draeger's and their wine team (Michael and Greg) for hosting the spring wine tasting event with us @ their tasting bar in Danville on May 20th from 2-4PM. We poured some of our best wine selection. For all wines being featured, Draeger's Blackhawk offered a discount to purchase with no minimum quantity required. Thank you all for coming and thank you for all your continued support!
One of today's featured wine - Egri Bikavér (Bull's Blood)
For Hungarian wine, Egri Bikavér means “bull’s blood from the region of Eger”. Legend has it that the wine gets its name from the siege of the Castle of Eger in 1552, when the Hungarian troops drank the red Bikaver it gave them the strength of a bull! The 10,000 Hungarian troops defending the Castle of Eger fought off 100,000 invading troops of the Ottoman empire.
By Hungarian regulation, the Bull's Blood wine must be made of at least three grapes and at least 50% percent must be a native red grape, usually Kékfrankos or Kadarka. These wines are fierce, fiery, fuller-bodied red wines with red/blue stewed and jammy fruits with good acidity.
Hungarian wines are still quite unknown and very underrated. They carry great value for the price and flavor profiles. Only a few of the visitors of the tasting said to have either tried Hungarian wine or visited Hungary. The rest were all pleasantly surprised at the uniqueness of Hungarian wines versus the California ones they are used to. A fun and interesting fact is that all these Hungarian wines are NON-GMO.

Thank you to our new friends from Murcia, Spain for visiting us.
We would like to welcome Frederico Marco from La Purismia Bodegas, Maria Lafuente of Boedgas Arolren, and Jesus Sanchez of Tercia de Ulea to Burlingame, CA. USA.
Murcia is in a southeast region of Spain, the climate here is Mediterranean. The coast contains the sub-regions of Valencia, Catalonia and Murcia. Murcia is a warmer growing region that produce a bulk of value wines from the deep red fruit driven Monastrell to aromatic white Malvasia and the widely planted Airén. Most of the wines we tasted from these wineries contained either Monastrell or Syrah. Spanish wines are often overlooked and underrated even though they becoming the largest producer of wine in the world.
A great time was had by all as we tasted their latest and greatest wine offerings. We look forward to a long lasting relationship!
