Hungary Wine

Tokaj wine region in Hungary is not the biggest producer, but it is the most famous. The Tokaj wine region is renowned for its delicate, sweet rot wine. The name itself may not stimulate the palate, but this Hungary wine is certainly delicious. Search for Hungary accommodation today and taste sweet rot wine in its home, Tokaj wine region.

When the Turks attacked the region in 1650, the grape harvest was put off causing much of the harvest to grow fungus. The fungal grapes were set aside as an experiment to see what they might taste like. And so Tokaji Aszu was born! The Tokaj cellars are carved out of volcanic rock, some extending over 35km. Some wines can be found in the cellars that are over 300 years old and still growing in bouquet! Make sure to visit the Hetszolo Estate for luscious wines!
