Feb 6th 2008 3:38PM Hungarian wine is wonderful stuff - and I mean all the different kinds, more than a dozen varieties, i think. How can they have so many kinds in such a small country??
When I lived in Ireland I talked to a wine seller asking him why he didnt sell Hungarian Wines - he said: 'Hungarian Wines are too agricultural.' WTF??!
As if an Irishman would know anything about wine! Eeejit.
Now I live in Hungary and a decent bottle of wine costs less than 2 euro and I love it!
But if you visit here please do not forget to try the Pálinka - my fav is Panyolai Pálinka from an itty bitty little village called Panyola near the Ukrainian border and you can take a free tour of its distillery and sample the stuff. All made from 'Nem Tudom Silva' or in english 'I Don't Know Plums' which are the local wild plums from the forests that the villages gather for some extra cash. Great stuff and it gives you an instant buzz... http://panyolai.hu
