“The King of wines and the wine of Kings”
Hungary is on the mend.
With 22 wine regions growing hundreds of varieties, the country offers a multitude of great wines to explore.
You can get a general idea of the country’s wines in four of its main regions: Eger, Tokaj, Villány and Somló.
Tokaj is the gold standard of Hungarian wine regions. It is Hungary’s most famous wine region, the oldest in the world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of the world’s first “Noble Rot” wine: the sweet, golden Tokaji Aszú (“toe-kye as-zoo”).
Louis XIV described Tokaji Aszú as “the king of wines and the wine of kings”.
