Have you tried to buy Hungarian wine in a German town of about 100,000 inhabitants? Our director tried to do so once, as a gift. How shocked was she when she realized that was almost impossible! Eventually, she did get two bottles in the second wine shop she went to, but it was not the same quality of wine she knew from here.

Unfortunately, many parts of Europe still haven’t noticed the good Hungarian wines. Have you? Try out a nice glass of Hungarian wine on a warm summer evening!

Here are some words that might help you*:

Egy pohár bort szeretnék – I would like a glass of wine

Vörös bor – red wine

Fehér bor – white wine

édes – sweet

száraz – dry

Hungarian – magyar
