Grapes have been grown and wine made in the part of Europe we now know as Hungary since at least Roman times. Over the last 25 years, the industry has been the beneficiary of substantial inward investment and is now one of the most modern and progressive in Europe. We have tasted some great wines on visits to the region and thought we ought to share some of these with you.
