A DAY ON THE LAPOSA GASTRO ESTATE
Close to Badacsony railway station, the beach and the port of Badacsony, the Hableány, reopened in 2019, is located in the city center. Start the walk from here! Next to the wine cellar there is a contemporary Balaton bistro kitchen with local ingredients, a huge terrace and a local history exhibition. You can see the tank room next to the tables, so the visitor can get even closer to the wine-making process. During the factory visit, you can get an insight into the cellar, the factory, the process of making sparkling wine and the life of the estate during wine tasting.
Hableány has always been a meeting point: a venue for weddings, birthdays, big conversations, first a hostel, then a shop, a restaurant, and lastly a modern streetfood bistro called Kishableány. Now an estate center, wine shop, shop, bistro and restaurant in one, the gateway to the wine region.
“It’s an incredible feeling to be able to give back to the community by renovating a building that belongs to a cityscape, endowing it with new features, yet respecting the past. The Hableány has come a long way, with the renovation of an iconic building, a new building has been reborn, updated, expanded and brought to new life. ”
“It’s an exciting project in many ways. Architecturally, culturally and socially, as the meeting of tradition and modern technologies can be seen in action, at every step of the renovation, just as in the end.”
From the Hableány, then head towards the mountain and then take a left turn along the Roman road, admiring the rows of vineyards and old houses. We will soon reach the frissTerasz, famous for its lazy afternoons and first-class burgers. The burgers are made from local ingredients, the bun is baked at the local bakery, the sauce and the mayonnaise are homemade. A splash or a fresh batch of white wines from Laposa Birtok (Welschriesling, Pinot Gris, Kéknyelű is also on the drink page). The frissTerasz is kid-friendly, a playground awaits children and dogs are also welcome. In the evenings, concerts, DJ sets and parties are common.
On Kisfaludy Sándor Street, heading towards the top of Badacsony, the Szőlőhegy Bistro, which used to be the center of the Szeremley Estate, and then a restaurant called St. Orban, is just on our way.
