Unique wines you must not miss.
Just like all over Hungary, in Badacsony wine region Olaszrizling is the most important white grape variety, you can find it in reductive, fresh style (also labelled as BalatonBor – ’Wine of Balaton’) but wonderful aged Olaszrizling is also easy to find. However there are some indigenous grapes that are typical only of Badacsony, like Kéknyelű, or the relatively new crossings like Vulcanus and Rózsakő.
