Hungary

The wines of Hungary have a long and rich history, dating back over a thousand years. The country's unique climate and geography, combined with its winemaking traditions, have resulted in a range of distinctive wines that are gaining recognition worldwide.

One of the most famous Hungarian wines is Tokaji, a sweet wine made from grapes affected by botrytis, a beneficial mould that concentrates the grapes' sugars. Tokaji is known for its rich, honeyed flavors and is often compared to Sauternes from Bordeaux.


Hungary also produces high-quality dry white wines, including Furmint and Hárslevelű. These wines are known for their crisp acidity and mineral flavors and are often compared to the wines of Austria and Germany.


Hungarian winemakers are known for their use of traditional winemaking techniques, including aging wines in oak barrels and using indigenous grape varieties. This approach results in wines with unique flavors and aromas that are distinctive to the region. Leading producers in this country include Kiralyudvar, Oremus and Royal Tokaji, all of which produce a range of exceptional dry wine and noble rot sweet wine.
