Winery recommendations in Eger

I will be in Eger October 6-8 and I am committed to spending one evening in the Valley of Beautiful Women (Szépasszonyvölgy ?) sipping Bull's Blood. I know I know the Valley is not universally popular on these forums, and I know it's trez touristy, but (a) I'll be a tourist and (b) it is part of the local scene in Eger. My question is: who's got the Bull's Blood? Which cellar(s) should I make sure I hit for the best beverage the Valley has to offer?

Related: I don't think I have time, but in case something comes up I'll ask this:

If I make it over to Tokaj, which winery (ies) should I make a point of hitting?

Most of the cellars sell Egri Bikaver but no 2 will necessarily taste the same.

My favourite pince is number 26 (Prokaj) near the top on the left but the better quality ones tend to be on the right (including Juhasz).

Retro: I prefer the Bull's Blood at the Fred Flintstone simply because after I get done with the excellent bean soup, I don't care what the wine tastes like!

@Donbacsi: The Fred Flintstone? For realsies? Do they serve an order of ribs so huge that it'll tip over the Skoda I'm renting?

Retro: If you want to be sure to tip over your rental, get a trabant...the plastic car triumph of the socialist era!
