OUR STORY

Founded by Lilla O’Connor in 2014, Wines of Hungary UK, is the key project of Wine Communications, a London based wine marketing and communications agency. We represent a group of established Hungarian winemakers with ambitions to introduce their wines to the UK market and help them in building sales. Wine Communications works on both business to business and business to consumer level. We work with wine makers and assist them through each steps of the distribution channel, either with market entry strategy into the UK market to lead generation, or driving volumes with sales support communication and promotional activities.
