Wine Regions

Hungary is divided into 22 wine regions, which is often argued that it is far too many for the size of the country. We still keep the 22 wine region system, because it is well-known and always referred to within Hungary. On the page you can get a glimpse of each wine region, then by clicking on them, you will reach the suggested wineries.
