The Wine Cellars of Witch Valley: The Wine Cellars
Szépasszony-völgy (Witch Valley) is the home of the world-famous wines of Eger. Those who have become tired of sightseeing may turn into one of the cellars hollowed into the rhyolite tuff hillsides. The walls of the cellars are covered with noble mould. The so called Öregsor (Old Row [of wine cellars]) was established in the 18th century, but the first cellars were probably made at an even earlier time.
The best place to sample local wines is in the vineyard country just west of Eger, in the wine cellars of the Szépasszony-völgy (Valley of the Beautiful Women). More than 200 wine cellars are here, each offering its own vintage. Some cellars have live music. Although the wine cellars don't serve food, you can grab a meal at a few local restaurants. Generally, the cellars open at 10am and close by 9 or 10pm.
The easiest way to get to the Szépasszony-völgy is by taxi, though you can also walk there from the center in 30 or 40 minutes.
