Hungary has a wine tradition stretching back to Roman times. Yet despite surviving centuries of political, religious and economic challenges the independent wine industry was all but suffocated under the Soviet System. Thankfully the end of the 20th century saw a reawakening of Hungary as a great wine producer.
Today this proud nation at the crossroads of Central Europe is a wine-producing country of considerable diversity; a rich selection of indigenous grape varieties and twenty two official wine regions, each of which have their own particular blend of culture, history, terroir and wine style.
We have put together an 8 bottle mixed case with independent specialists Border Wines, showcasing the superb red and white Wines of Hungary. The case offers great value at the exclusively discounted price of £139.00.
Join the course and I will email a link to purchase the wines.
