The Törley Champagne Cellars are 125 years old
2007-12-14 - 2008-03-09
It was 125 years ago that József Törley returned to Hungary from France in order to establish a champagne factory and popularise sparkling wine in his homeland. Held to commemorate this occasion, the exhibit covers everything in connection with Törley champagne from the very beginning up to the present day. Colour advertisements, documents, champagne bottles and glasses, furniture from the Japanese salon at the Törley mansion, tools of the trade, a precisely assembled champagne pyre and enlarged photos all help to recall the former Törley cellars in Budafok. Champagne postcards from a century ago wish us a Happy New Year while enchanting sculptures and the Lucullus Fountain created by Törley’s great-granddaughter, Mária Törley, radiate the spirit of celebration.
