Abstract

There are 22 different wine regions recognized in Hungary today, although only three or four are known internationally. The researchers recently had the opportunity to visit seven of these regions and evaluate their wines and wine industry. Of importance to the topic were the new varieties developed at the research center of University of Pannonia Georgikon. These, along with a resurgence in the planting of several native Hungarian Vitis vinifera, have adapted well to the soils and climates of specific regions. They may serve to spur the future popularity of Hungarian wine.
