Egregy is a particular part of the town which has a unique atmosphere. The wine cellars and the wine hill – the so-called “Grinzing” of Egregy – of the town which attract guests themselves, is an extremely popular restaurant area in the green belt, offering heavy wines and Hungarian food. The guests may taste the specialities of Hungarian cuisine that are already famous beyond the borders of the country, as well as the “snack” offered by the local wine producers: fresh lard bread with paprika and onions.
Egregy, which is located 1,500 metres from the town centre, was an independent part of the town for a long time, and still preserves its village-like atmosphere even today. Refreshed after the bath treatment, almost all the guests of Lake Hévíz visit Egregy once at least during their stay here, and while listening to the story-telling of frequent visitors, they also take a liking for the local specialities and the pleasant wines. You may access to the place on foot walking along the vineyard past the 12th century church from the Árpád-dynasty, or by train starting from the town centre.
The wine cellars of Egregy consist of two little streets; it is worth walking in all the streets around, and visiting some of the cellars depending on your taste. In the summer you may hear Gypsy music coming from the cellars, trying to attract visitors walking in the streets..
Yield to temptation! Click your glasses to your health and Hévíz as well!
