A few hundred years ago, Hungary was one of the most important wine producers in Europe. Every royal court in Europe clinked glasses filled with precious gold Tokaji (“toe-kye”) wine, while other Hungarian Red and White wines were lauded and enjoyed throughout Europe.
So why don’t we see more Hungarian wine today? Two world wars, and forty years of communist rule is the answer.
Fortunately, Hungary is bouncing back. Countless small estates, replanted and cultivated across the country are producing beautiful wines–a result of traditional winemaking culture mixed with a modern sensibility. With 22 wine regions growing hundreds of varietals, the country offers a multitude of great wines to explore
