Szekszard Wine RegionThe Szekszard wine region is one of the oldest red-wine growing areas of Hungary, with vines first established here over 2000 years ago. The most well-known grape of the region is Kadarka, but other grape varieties of the area include Cserszegi Fuszeres, Harslevelu, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Kekfrankos and Zweigelt. The continental character of the climate is heavily influenced by the Danube river, as the large body of water reflects the sun’s rays and reduces any extremes of temperature. Summers are long and sunny here and the autumn boasts dry, warm weather, so grapes have plenty of time to ripen with a good quantity of sugar. So with favourable weather conditions and fertile, loess soil, the only challenge for wine growers is low rainfall.

Szekszard wines are famously full bodied, velvety and spicy reds.
