Hungary: A Diamond In the Rough

For hundreds of years, Hungary has produced some of the world’s most prized wines. By the 16th century, Hungarian wines were among the most celebrated among the royals, though these wine traditions were hurt by both Phylloxera and by the Communist period that followed WWII. Today, nearly 25 years after the fall of Communism in Hungary, the country is experiencing a new renaissance of this wine energy with the reestablishment of family wineries and renewed interest of international investors. Hungary, a diamond in the rough, now in its second coming, produces a myriad of styles, from the bone-dry Hárslevelüs and Furmints, to the red “Bull’s Blood,” or “Egri Bikaver,” to the botrytis-affected Esszencia, one of the world’s rarest wines. Even Hungary’s everyday wines are special, given the diversity of its climate and soils. Half of Hungary’s wine production comes from the great plain that stretches south of Budapest, while the famed sweet Tokaji comes from the northeast. These whites, sweet wines, and often forgotten reds are worth more than a second glance.
