I propose you a unique full day tour experience starting from Sighisoara which will give you the opportunity to meet a local wine producer, taste the best wines, eat a local brunch called goulash and spend an unforgettable day in this astonishing region of Europe called Transylvania.
This day tour begins with your pick up from the hotel. I usually begin this tour in the morning after breakfast between 09.00 and 10.00AM. We will head to Villa Vinea a Transylvanian winery located 70 km away from Sighisoara. Here we will visit the vineyard while being told interesting stories about traditional wine making in Transylvania, ancient local grape varieties and wine culture. The tour will continue through press and maturation facilities while staff will explain you the process of producing wines and during autumn you even get to see it on action. We will end this visit on the best possible way by tasting up to 7 different vines assorted with local matured cheese.
From Villa Vinea we will return to Sighisoara where you will have the opportunity to taste a local traditional dish, „Transylvanian goulash“ offered in a lovely courtyard lunch. In Hungarian “goulash” means “the shepherd’s dish”. The food is based on beef, pork, many vegetables and a spicy ingredient called “paprika”.
The secret of Goulash consists on slow cooking for three hours in a cast iron cooking pot on a fire made out of apple and plum wood which gives food a specific flavor.
While the pot is still on the fire, we will treat you with traditional home-made plum brandy called ” palinca” . Forget about tours and guides, I want you to enjoy a unique experience and learn about the reach gastronomy and wine culture of our region. In the end I will give you some general and some customized tips as I don’t want you to enjoy just the time we spend together, but your entire stay in Transylvania.
