The Wines of Hungary

The Wines of Hungary



This reference to the 22 wine regions of Hungary shows how this country, with its once-proud wine tradition, reinvented itself after 45 years of communism, during which time the entire structure of grape growing and wine production was changed out of recognition. The author details how Hungary's re-adjustment, which still continues, has progressed through privatization, foreign investment and the dedication of small producers struggling to achieve quality standards in the face of a chronic lack of capital. He covers over 300 wine producers, not only from the famous regions like Tokaj and Villany, where significant progress has been made, but also from the lesser-known and as yet underdeveloped regions that suggest the potential to make world-class wines. There are detailed profiles of the leading producers, with assessments of their wines, plus maps detailing the key wine areas.
