Vineyards, sizes

In Hungary altogether 58,607 hectares were under vines in 2015. This amount was enough to produce 2,774,991 hectolitres wine in that year. If you compare, Hungary’s vineyard area is less then half of Bordeaux (112,000 ha in 2014) or less then 1/3 of its eastern neighbour, Romania (183,170 in 2012).
