The Hills Are Alive: The Volcanic Wines of Hungary
$40 for 18 Reasons members; $50 for the general public


Join Eric Danch of Blue Danube Wine Company to talk about the delicious (and rare) Volcanic wine from Hungary.

While many people think of Mt. Etna, Campania or the Canary Islands when they think Volcanic wine, Hungary has been quietly growing wine on the sides of volcanoes since Roman times.  Come taste grapes like Juhfark (Sheeps Tail), Furmint, Hárslevelü (Linden Leaf), Kékfrankos (aka Blaufränkisch) and many others from wine regions like Tokaj, Eger, and Somló.  For many of these wines, only a handful of cases have ever been imported to the United States.

About Eric:
At 15, Eric started washing dishes at The Ranch House in Ojai, California. After 4 years, multiple titles, and nightly brown bag tastings with a sommelier with over 30 years experience, he became enamored with the story, culture, and community of wine. Moving to San Francisco in 2005 after two years living in Europe (Copenhagen & Rome), he found a job at Teatro Zinzanni, a 3-hour European cabaret meets Vaudevillian circus. After 6 years he left the circus to start an internship with Crushpad, a pioneering San Francisco Custom Crush that makes over 700 small lot wines for people all over the world. In 2010, Eric worked harvest for a small Berkeley winery called "A Donkey and Goat," and did everything from grape to bottle including making his own barrel. D&G was named one of the Top 5 Winemakers to Watch in 2011 by the SF Chronicle. Eric joined Blue Danube in the Spring of 2011.
