'Since I am from the homeland of pálinka it was obvious for me to try to make my own distillate when I was a university student. This moment gave me the pleasure of creation and pushed me into the world of fastidious consuming including not only the pálinka but the wines and the beers also.

Wine regions in Hungary

 

(Please, check here below the 6 wine regions you can taste and click on the "register" button at the bottom of this page to write your selected wine tasting program in the 'other comments' box.)

 

 

Hungary has 22 wine regions. This high number of wine regions in such a small country has to do with our climate and geography. Hungarian wines have a large variety. Hungary is one of those few places where you can find all classic types from white wines to full bodied red and natural sweet ones.

 
Market tour 1. Tokaj wine region - Amongst the leading whites of the world
In 2002 the UNESCO World Heritage Committee put the area on its world heritage list as Tokaj Wine Region Historic Cultural Landscape. The symbol and one of the centres of the wine region is Tokaj town. In addition to the basic wines, Szamorodni is produced from a mixture of alive bunches and dried raisin-like grapes and the most important wine of the region, the Aszú using a technology that goes back hundreds of years. The Tokaj region is a closed area, which means that is not permitted to bring in grapes, grape juice, wines – except bottled wines – into the region.It is obvious we cannot avoid Tokaj if we'd like to get to know the wonderful world of the sweet wines. But it seems it's obligatory to taste the dry Tokaj also. Exciting and more than stylish.

 

2. Eger wine region - Taste of Bikaver
One of Hungary’s historical wine regions. Its centre is Eger and there are 19 further towns and villages that belong to this region. The wine production here goes back 1000 years. The world famous cuvée, Egri Bull’s Blood, which is a full bodied, characteristic red wine with fine acid levels is made from the mixture of minimum 3 winetypes. 
Let's see the Bikaver of Eger that shines again like its new white pair called Egri Csillag.

Market tour 3.South Pannonia wine region - Oak barrels and the fruit stacks
This is the warmest and sunniest wine region in Hungary. The submediterranean microclimate and the lucky geographical features of the Villány mountains result in the best red wines of the country. Among red grapes the production of Kadarka and Oporto have the longest traditiom here. 
Cabernet Franc is the future promise of Villány and Szekszárd has its own blissful Bikavér. The elegancy of Pécs and the reliable quality of Tolna should be considered also.

 

  4. North Pannonia wine region - Ancient Hungarian and world wide spread verietien
This wine region is characterized by wonderful hills and slopes. The nicroclimate of this region is influenced by the Danube which is perfect for fruity and fragrant white wine production. This is a little wine region with easy and in some cases complex barrel aged whites. And be careful of the Kekfrankos of Sopron!
5. Lake Balaton wine region - Olaszrizling (Italian riesling) and the Hungarian sea
The wine produced around Balaton is mostly white. The most well-known of the wines produced here is Italian Riesling. The main feature of this greenish-yellow wine with reseda fragrance is its bitter almond aftertaste. In addition to Italian Riesling the Balaton region also produces other great wine types like Chardonnay, Pinot Gris or Irsai Oliver.

6. Great Plain of Hungary wine region - The genebank of Hungary

The Great Hungarian Plain (or it is called 'puszta') is occupying the southern and eastern part of Hungary. Its territory is 52,000 km² within Hungary so it comprises approximately 56% of the country. And why is it the genebank of Hungary from wine point of view? Come and let's have a talk about it! Almost every Hungarian variety can be found here. Primarily easy whites and very joyful roses should be tasted in this region but there are some interesting light reds also.
