Irsai Oliver is a recent Hungarian cross-breed (between Hungarian grapes of “Pozsonyi White”and “Pearl of Csaba”). The grape has rare leafage, big, loose clusters and it is not sensitive against illnesses. It ripens in August. Irsai is mostly planted in Hungary, but it has some plantings also in Moldova, Slovakia and Russia. This wine is very popular in Central Europe, it is easy going, beloved, a true chilled lady´s summer-wine. It goes well with Hungarian dishes such chicken stew with cream and paprika, so called “Chicken Paprikas”. Palinka ( Hungarian fruit spirit) has been turning into a reborn Hungarikum ( a typical Hungarian treasure in the Carpathian Basin) since 1990. We recommend our distillates which have been part of this transformation, for moderate consumption. These spirit are distilled from home grown and wild fruits. Palinka is appertizing and stomachic. it is a welcome drink at family gatherings or parties.
The quince apple and pear both belong to the Rosaceae (rose) family. The only fruit what they grow it for the fragrance and the taste. In “Ancient Rome” they called the quince as “golden apple”. In Europe, quinces are commonly grown in central and southern areas where the summers are sufficiently hot for the fruit to fully ripen. They are not grown in large amounts; typically one or two quince trees are grown in a mixed orchard with several apples and other fruit trees: so were they grown in the 18th-century New England colonies, where there was always a quince at the lower corner of the vegetable garden.
