This tasting presents the perfect opportunity for independents and wine merchants to taste some exciting newcomers from Hungary.

The country has undergone by a wine revolution inthe last two decades. Many young Hungarian winemakers are willing to break the old traditional rules andexperiment with new varieties and winemaking techniques.Many young winemakers are combining successfully their international education with the local traditions.

Hungary can not only offer painstakingly made sweet Tokaji Aszú but distinctive fiery, freshwhites and spicy reds that pair wonderfully with food. Discover dry Hárslevelű and Furmint from the volcanic soils of Tokaj and Somló, harmonious red blend called Egri Bikavér, elegant, single variety Cabernet Franc from Villány, the spicy Kadarka from Szekszárd, or juicy Kékfrankos from Sopron.

“What Hungarians seem to be finding is texture. In the 21st century more and more people are beginning to realise that the most satisfying thing in wine, it is also the most difficult to describe… is texture. That’s the way forward for wine at the moment. And Hungary does that very well.”  Oz Clarke
