Hunger Games: A Voyage of Iconic Hungarian Wines

Hungarian Masterclass in Hong Kong

An exciting workshop will take place in Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong next week, on 16 November. A century ago, Hungarian wines were a key player in Europe – but phylloxera, world wars, communism and more external factors interrupted a glorious wine growing tradition, which is now bouncing back. 22 wine regions and hundreds of grape varieties, its most renowned is Tokaji, noted for its golden sweet and Furmint Dry. Hosted by Debra Meiburg MW along with special guest winemaker Mr. Raphael Reybier, CEO of Hétszőlő and Mr. Yuk-Chi Ho, Managing Director of Wiseville SPIT’s November workshop Hunger Games: A Voyage of Iconic Hungarian Wines delves into Tokaj, and explores the terroir, indigenous grapes, and wine styles of other Hungarian key wine regions: Villány, Balaton and Nagy Somló.
