Some of Hungary’s best wines come from the Szekszárd area in the southwest of the country. The 2.700 hectares spanning wine growing region, almost 150 kilometers away from the capital Budapest, is famous for its red wines, mainly made of Kékfrankos, Kadarka, Cabernet and Merlot. But unfortunately the fame of those wines is almost unknown outside of the Hungarian borders.
To present the excellent, multifaceted wines from Szekszárd, nine members of the Szekszárd Winemakers Guild will introduce themselves for the first time from March 24-26 on the world’s biggest professional trade fair for wine, the ProWein in Düsseldorf. There will be two tastings, hosted by the renowned wine writer and Hungary connoisseur Rudolf Knoll on March 24 and March 26:
“Szekszárd: Hungary’s new red wine discovery”
March 24, 10.00 – 10.45 am and March 26, 12.00 – 12.45 pm in the ProWein Forum, Hall 7.1
The winemakers of Bodri Pincészet, Dúszi Tamás Pincészete, Eszterbauer Kft., Heimann Családi Birtok, Mészáros Borház, Schieber Pincészet, Szeleshát Szölöbirtok, Takler Pince and Vida Családi Borbirtok will be there to answer questions after the tastings.
