A trendy Hungarian way to serve wine
I found this unique wooden wine dispenser at the Christmas market in Budapest. Together with my sister, a sommelier, we were intrigued by its sophisticated construction.
We were both wondering, why there aren’t more creative manufacturers of similar decorative and handy tools for wine lovers? Not just would they make wine drinking with friends more fun at home, but seeing these sculpted toys in the wine shops would add more “artisanal” feel to them. Don’t you think?
When I was in Hungary recently I too saw an unusual wine dispenser. I was informed it was called a lopo. I would like to buy one of these but have no idea where. I am in Australia. Any suggestions Thanks
It has been years since I visited Budapest, yet I will be there next year so I will investigate where to get these tools online.
