Hungary in pictures

Last week db travelled to Villány in Hungary, a region on a mission to convince the world that it is the true home of Cabernet Franc.

While Cabernet Franc is a major international variety, beyond the cool-climate Cabernet Franc’s of the Loire it is rarely represented on its own. Argentina and Chile have recently taken up the challenge of untapping the potential of the grape; however, the southern Hungarian wine region of Villány has its own claim to as the true home of the grape.

Since 2015, Villány’s winemakers have set themselves the task of hosting the ‘Franc&Franc’ conference to promote Cab Franc, offering international press and trade members the chance to get to know the local expressions of the variety.

A conference co-hosted by Elizabeth Gabay MW and Caroline Gilby MW sought to establish how the region’s winemakers could launch their flagship product on the world stage, while a series of visits to some of the region’s most respected wineries, such as Gere, Csányi, Vylyan and Sauska, gave journalists the chance to understand how the local industry – and its wines – are evolving.

In the pages that follow, db presents a few pictorial highlights from the trip…

    If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. Where’s the proof? There’s nothing in the text to support this claim.
