Hungarian tasting to focus on ‘the region’s quality wines’

10th September, 2013 by Andy Young

The Malux Hungarian Food and Wine Autumn tasting and masterclass aims to inform attendees about the quality of wines coming out of Hungary.

HungaryThe tasting will offer over 50 Hungarian wines, many of which can be found in fine dining and Michelin star restaurants as well as many wine merchants.

There will also be two opportunities to attend a masterclass, entitled “What makes Hungarian wine special?”, which will give details of the country’s winemaking history, regions, terroirs as well as the people who make the wines. The masterclass also offers the opportunity to taste “eight unique wines”.

Caroline Gilby MW, a Central European expert, said: “I’d love to encourage sommeliers to discover how Hungary can offer them a point of difference and new story of discovery, as well as wines that can match the diversity of great food available today in the UK restaurant scene.”

At the tasting attendees will be able to try many native Hungarian grapes as well as a number of international varieties.

In statement about the tasting Malux said: “The wines are versatile and suit all cuisines, we want to excite buyers with new opportunities they never knew existed and in turn provide their customers and guests with an experience of quality Hungarian wines they go home and talk about and come back for more.”

This first autumn tasting has come about after a hugely successful spring tasting and is the start of a “strong marketing plan” for 2014, which will be looking to generate “an understanding and a buzz” about the range and quality of Hungarian wine.

The tasting take place at theBalassi Institute Hungarian Cultural Centre, Covent Garden, London on Monday 16 September, running from 10am-5pm with the masterclasses taking place at 11am and 2.30pm. Open to wine buyers, sommeliers and off-trade buyers, you can register your place here.
