Vilány wine region


villányi-borvidékVillány is one of Hungary’s top wine regions, known for its reds and rosés. Hungary’s most southern wine region has long and hot summers with abundant sunshine, followed by a mild winter. Thanks to this sub-Mediterranean climate wines from Villány are full-bodied and spicy and of the highest quality. The majority of Hungary’s award-winning wines are produced in the Villány region. According to archeological finds winemaking traditions in the region can be traced back to Roman times.
