MAIN Arrow to Wine Directory Wine Arrow to European Wines Europe Arrow to Wines & Wineries of HungaryHungary

From its first introduction by the Romans a thousand years ago -- to various invasions, world wars, and a takeover by the Soviet Union -- the history of Hungarian wine has certainly had its ups and downs.

Today, drawing on its glory days of success in the 19th century, Hungary is once again emerging as a modern 'player' in the Europen wind industry.

In European vineyards and throughout the world the trend to growing more red grapes has been rising to meet the demand for affordable quality wines.

In Hungary the indigenous Kadarka and other common Central European varieties like Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch) and Zweigelt are sharing their terroir with Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and other international varieties.

This experimentation with new varieties, modern viticulture and updated production methods combined with the centuries old Hungarian wine traditions is bringing some excellent single and blended wines to the world table. Names like Egri Bikaver will soon be a familiar sound in wine circles.

But Hungary has not abandoned its traditiional white wines... Tokaj's Furmint and Hárslevelü, Zöld Veltlini (Grüner Veltliner), Riesling and Olaszrizling (Welschriesling) are still getting plenty of attention and Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris are becoming more popular throughout the white wine regions.
