In the 5th episode of the Balaton Upland series, I interviewed Lilla Laposa, the youngest member of the Laposa winery family, from the Badacsony Hill. You will learn how Lake Balaton, paired with the volcanic basalt soil, creates a truly unmatchable microclimate on the Badacsony Hill. Lilla gives reasons why the Olaszrizling has become their flagship variety, and how diverse it can become. She also gives a deep introduction into another autochthonous variety: Kéknyelű, which always calls for a romantic love story with Budai Zöld (another native grape here) in order to propagate. I also had my best Furmint in my life from the Laposa winery, so look for the label and the tasting notes on the Instagram site.
