The guests arrived, the first wine was served, the appetizers and the pogácsa were tasty! The evening proceeded as planned: fine wine, intimate atmosphere, lovely table settings, good food, and good company. To add to the ambiance, the reception hour was made all the more memorable by piano music setting the festive atmosphere. The dinner experience was enhanced by the Magyar sounds played by members of Harmonia. Featured wines came from some of the finest wine-growing regions of Hungary: from Tokaj, a 2015 Patricius Furmint and a 2012 Füleky Pallas Late Harvest; from the Mátra region, a Szőke Mátyás, 2016 Pino Gris (Szürkebarát) and from the same winery, a 2017 Irsai Oliver; from Sopron, a Pfneiszl 2014 Távoli Világ Cuvee. There was something to tempt everyone’s palate! Our Honoree for this year’s dinner was the Hungarian Cultural Club of Northeast Ohio, and their president, Mary Jane Molnár.
One of the wonderful things about a volunteer organization such as our Museum, is that it gives people the opportunity to use their talents to benefit the community. Our Vintner Dinner Committee truly exemplifies this spirit of cooperation and creativity…and so below you can see some the “behind the scenes” images of members preparing for this year’s dinner.
We are grateful for all the friends of the Museum who supported this Vintner Dinner in various ways….
We hope to see you next year and greet you with “Isten Hozott!”
But until then, “A viszonlátásig!’ to all our friends!
