The world of wine is extremely rich and varied, and it definitely deserves a special day dedicated to this magical nectar. World Wine Day provides an opportunity to get to know wines even more deeply and to recognize the work and expertise behind wine making.
The wonderful world of wines
Diversity reigns in the world of wines. Over the centuries, hundreds of wine varieties have been born in different regions of the world, each with its own unique characteristics and taste. Wines can basically be divided into three categories: red, white, rosé, but many also include champagne, sparkling wine, and fruit wine. Not to mention the splash, which is an "easy" terrain. Each one is for a different occasion and each one has its own place in the heart of wine lovers. Wine making is a true art in which terroir, i.e. the soil, climate and topography of the wine's original place of production, play a vital role.
Hungarian wine culture
Hungary is also famous for its wines, from Tokaji Aszú to Egri Bikavér to Villányi red wines, a wide variety of wines have been on the table of foreign wine lovers in recent decades. Wine making has a long history here as well, and many winemakers can boast rich traditions and good results at domestic and international competitions.
Wine festivals, such as the Budapest Wine Festival or the Villányi Vörösbor Festival, or even wine festivals organized regularly in rural towns, offer a great opportunity to get to know wines and build a community of wine enthusiasts.
It is also worth highlighting the gastronomic importance of Hungarian wines: there are specific ways of pairing the wines and food here, which enhance the taste experience.
