August 15 Photo of the Day: Hungary

September 19, 2013 – This was a true "grab shot". As we wandered into the village from our pension for lunch, these friendly fellows passed by.

We had just the one day in Tokaj (a few hours from Budapest by train). Unfortunately the day was a rainy one, but no matter. We were here on the recommendation of a Hungarian friend to find the source of and taste Tokaji AszĂș. It is a dessert wine she claimed is otherwise known as "Nectar of the Gods". (Louis XIV apparently called it the "Wine of Kings; King of Wines".

We have since found it in at our local LCBO Toronto and have been known to enjoy a taste now and then on special occasions.
