We present our winery’s protected designations of origin, long-aging, dry, white terroir wines including the 2017 and 2018 vintages of Welschriesling, Pinot gris and Cuvée. Our Tobacco Pipe Club, founded in 2019, also took part in the event, making the conversation pleasant.   The wine dinners in Kecskemét have become traditional for two years now. Our guests had an opportunity to taste six wines on the vertical, guided wine tasting of the winery’s terroir wines and listen to scientific presentations about wine related topics.   We tasted the wines together with delicious snacks. A Capri dish served as an appetizer,  with a selection of Italian cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, Capri berries, olives and dried ham. Next came a light summer main course, sous vide farm chicken supreme with grilled summer vegetables, jacket potatoes with green spices and yoghurt dressing. The participants also tasted premium quality Italian olive oils from Abruzzo as a plus.   The wines were presented by Máté Bakos, Viticulture and Winemaking University student and Strategic Manager of Bakos Winery. In his speech Máté highlighted the impact of mineral soil and volcanic rock on the wines of Csobánc Hill. The next presentation was held by Bakos Barbara dr. pharmacist about the positive physiological effects of white wines especially the premium quality wines with high mineral content.   Dr. Irén Fehér Nagyné horticultural engineer, retired college professor and former Deputy Director of University of Horticulture in Kecskemét (and mentor of Máté Bakos), also took part of the event. She appreciated the development of Bakos Winery and also the performance of the next generation.   The favorite wine of the guests was Cuvée 2017 battonage, based on the evaluation sheets completed during the tasting.
