Villány, the mediterranean wine region of Hungary is the most famous of its single varietal Villányi Franc– outsanding, complex, elegant wines made of Cabernet Franc–, but last year anothercommunity brand, RedY was presented. The wineries realized that „they had been ready for the new challenge of meeting the needs of the Y generation”. RedY wines are always blends with Portugieser base (51–66%). Other local varieties contribute to the blend (Blauburger, Kadarka, Kékfrankos és Zweigelt, 20–49%) and the international varieties are represented with maximum 14%. Around 20 Villány wineries made RedY from the 2018 vintage, all of them are approved by a local quality control board. You can easily find the RedY labels for example from Vylyan, Bock, Csányi or Gere Tamás & Zsolt wineries. This latter one is made of Portugieser 60%, Kékfrankos 30% and Kadarka 10%. Kadarka is vinified in large barrel, while the majority of the wine is kept in stainless steel. The outcome is exactly what RedY blend was created for: to show the cheerful, spicy, naughty face of Villány! The new vintage RedY wines come out with chic red capsules!
