The Villány-Siklós appellation is Hungary’s southernmost wine region. Located near the 46th meridian, the region is at nearly the same latitude as Bordeaux’s northern areas.
Szekszárd is situated about an hour’s drive north of Villány-Siklos. The best vineyards are on the slopes of the Szekszárd hill itself and the soil is mainly the relatively rare iron-rich “Terra Rossa” soil so renowned the world over for growing high quality grapes.
Tokaj is Hungary’s most famous wine region. Located in the northeast, its dessert wines, and in particular the Tokaji Aszú, are without a doubt what Hungarians like to term a ”Hungarikum”. In English, a uniquely Hungarian product.
