Red wine from Hungary
Although red wine in Hungary is in the minority, they are more than worth exploring. About 30% of wine production in Hungary is red.
The most famous Hungarian red wine is the Egri Bikavér or Bull blood wine from Eger. See also Egri Bikaver. But not only in Eger good wine is made, but also around Lake Balaton and in Villány. Villány is also called the Bordeaux of Hungary and this region produces powerful red wines. In Sopron, near the Austrian border, we also find them mainly from Kékrankos and Zweigelt. Around Lake Balaton they are often a bit lighter than those from Villány and Sopron. Finally, Szekszárd in the south is also a wine area where predominantly red wine is produced.
