So many different types of wine are produced in Hungary. The largest wine producing region is the Kunság region. This area, which is located to the east of Lake Balaton, contains no less than 25,000 hectares of wine-growing land. In this area there is a continental climate with warm summers and cold winters and the soil often consists of sandy soil. It is for this reason that cultivation of vines started in the Middle Ages, so that they could hold the sandy soil. Kunság is a region that mainly grows native Hungarian white grape varieties. For example, the Ezerió, an early matured dry wine, is grown here. A much smaller wine producing area can be found in the south of the country. This area is called the Villány-Siklós . Mostly red wines are produced here that belong to the Hungarian wine top. In the Villány area, for example, many blue grape varieties are grown, which are characterized by their excellent quality. Some examples of the blue grape varieties in question are the well-known Pinot Noir, the Merlot and the Cabernet Sauvignon. In the Siklós area, on the other hand, mainly white grape varieties are grown. Some of these grape varieties are the Chardonnay and the Rajnai Rizling. At Grand Cru wines we have the fine wines from Vega Sicilia Oremus. Mainly white wines with dessert wines made from the Tokaj grape.
