Hungary has been producing wine for centuries. Situated in the middle of the Carpathian Basin and sheltered by the surrounding mountains, the country benefits from a rich and diverse terroir well suited to wine making. 22 wine regions offer their own unique styles and signature wines as a result of their individual combination of soil, topography, and microclimate. On the whole, Hungary's viticulture flourished until the 20th Century, when two world wars followed by forty years of Communism resulted in traditional winemaking going to ground; vineyards were controlled by the State, with quality and variety substituted for large scale production and dependability. Quantity, not quality, was the order of the day
