  • Technically, the OP's wine wouldn't be Egri Bikaver, just Bikaver, and he didn't call it that.  Basically he's making a blend using grape varieties that would be found in "Bull's Blood."  Whew.  Gotta slow down.Are we all trying to avoid serious work this afternoon?  I mean, those of us who aren't actually retired.

  • I don't know about that Fox but you're right, I was interested in the ... It's pretty good too. Egri just means from Eger.

It sems that the quality is still pretty much the same as the first time I bought it around 40 years ago. Well worth it @ $8 a crack. Not so with Leese-Fitch 2013 (Napa) C... Read More

  • Hi Folks!This site was really great several years ago helping me track down Corsican reds here in NYC (I'm in Staten Island.) Many of my friends, and myself included, are interested in very good wines (mostly reds)  at the lowest possible price. There really are many such wines out there if you look hard enough!
