Hungary

Hungary is a nation known for many things: for its fairy-tale castles; for its gentle, rolling hills; for the grandeur and vibrancy of Budapest itself. What it’s less well-known for, sadly, is the wine. Phylloxera, war and communist doctrine may have stifled the country’s reputation as a world-leading wine producer, but that doesn’t mean it now offers anything but sheer, unbridled quality. From the ‘nectar’ of the sweet whites of Tokaji (as mentioned in Hungary’s national anthem) to the legendary, full-bodied ‘bulls-blood’ reds of Eger, Hungary’s wines are as eclectic as they are memorable, from the  Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc ,Pinot Noir, Cabernet and Merlot grape varietals, to the more local Harslevelu, Isai Oliver, Fermint  among the whites and Kekfrankos and Potuguieser for the reds.

A wine tour to Hungary means not only great wines, of course, but also truly gorgeous scenery – in the foothills of the Tokaj wine region especially – as well as the music, fashion and food of an endearing and fascinating folk culture, and Budapest, one of the most characterful and unique cities in Europe. It’s no surprise, really, that Hungary is considered – by both travellers and wine-lovers – one of Europe’s best, and best-kept, secrets.

As ever, we here at SmoothRed possess an unmatched, intimate familiarity with the country – we’ve been, we’ve seen and we’ve experienced for ourselves the very best hand-picked wineries and hotels for our tours. Give our office a call or e-mail today. You won’t be disappointed.
