Hungarian wine is probably more than you expected, with wine regions and local styles that are as alluring as they are diverse. If a wine shop were organized by flavor profile, the wines of Eger, Tokaj, Villány and Somló would all respectfully belong in different corners of the store. Yet all the wines reflect something of their shared history. The fresh wines of Eger, the golden delights of Tokaj, the lush reds of Villány, and the ashy whites of Somló: they are bold, spicy, authentic and persistent. They are under-hyped, but are begging to become the next stars of the wine world. Opening a bottle of Hungarian wine is like uncovering a great historical secret. Luckily for us, the secret is out, and the history is just beginning.
