Perhaps the best-known landscape of the Balaton Highlands, the Kál Basin is also the heart of the wine district, so if you only have one day to explore the wine district, you should dedicate it to this area. In the morning, visit the stone sea on the outskirts of Szentbékkálla, marvel at the moveable stone and petrified former seashore tour, then stroll around Szentbékkálla and enjoy a wine tasting at a local winery. Then rent a bike or head off on foot across the slopes of Fekete Hill along the paths through the vineyards to neighbouring Köveskál, which has advertised itself as Gastro Village for years, and not without reason. Have lunch in one of the bistros, walk around Fekete Hill, climb up to the Eötvös Lookout Tower and admire the landscape where huge herds of grey cattle once grazed, from above. Wander back down through the almond trees and rows of vines to Köveskál, sip a refreshing fruit cordial on a terrace or in a grassy courtyard under the sunshades, taste wine in one of the countless wineries, check out the town’s well with its laundry building and finally have dinner at one of the cosy restaurants.
