Rare/remarkable wine in Europe
October 11, 2013 2:05 PM Subscribe
A friend of mine is a red wine connoisseur currently located in the Southern U.S. I am located in Europe and am searching for a great Christmas gift. I don't know much about wine, except the kinds I like and not spending more than $10/bottle on one for myself. Are there any great, rare, or otherwise exceptional wines to which I may have access, that he would not? (Or, at least, that would have some significance coming from here) I am happy to travel basically wherever within Europe as long as it makes a good story.

I would like to spend not more than $300 on the bottle including shipment back to the U.S. (which may be another question altogether but if you do have experience I'd be glad to hear it) but, I'd spend a bit more for a great bottle or case.
One example of what I'm looking for might be Royal Tekaji from Hungary, but I'm not sure how rare and amazing it actually is vs how much is marketing. Appreciate input from any winos/connoisseurs.
