Hungarian Wine Dinner
Feb 4 at 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
About 100 years ago, Hungary was one of the biggest wine producers in Europe. Every European royal court clinked glasses filled with the famous gold Tokaji wine, while other fine Hungarian whites and reds were enjoyed throughout Europe!
Tokyo Wine Events have teamed up with Hungarian Wine, an importer specializing in Hungarian wine only
Let’s enjoy a very good selection of food and Hungarian wine for an exciting experience under the guidance of a wine expert
Our Premium venue: The World Renowned Hilton Shinjuku
A 5 stars luxury hotel tower over the heart of Shinjuku.
Menu & Hungarian Wine selection
Vylyan Kszi ( Sparkling Rosé wine), 2018, 100% Pinot Noir
Playful, ethereal, lively, intensive, and elegant!
With Bread and Butter
The Amuse: King crab, salpicon and cold emulsion
Hungarian wine: Lezser White, Gunzer, 2021, Chardonnay 70%, Sauvignon Blanc 30%
A worthy example of this Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc marriage perfectly exemplifies the notion that sometimes “opposites attract”!

The Hungarian Dessert: Somlói galuska, Walnut and chocolate sponge “ Trifle ”
with malaga ice cream
Hungarian wine: Aszu 5 puttonyos Tokaji Hetszolo, 2000, 100% Furmit
