We are a UK based online wine merchant specialising in introducing and importing the very best wines from Hungary, home to many unique native grape varieties which produce characteristic wines that appeal to a broad range of palates.
Danube Wines is a small Anglo/Hungarian team who share a passion for Hungarian fine wine. We are the UK partner of Happy Hungarian Wine, sourcing the most dedicated wine makers who are united in our passion for sharing exquisite wines beyond this rich and exciting region, wines that are too good to remain a local secret.
Even though you stumbled upon us in the virtual world of the internet, we believe in the power of a very personal customer experience. Our aim was to create a website where you feel as if you’d talk to a wine merchant in your local specialist wine store, a wine merchant whose passion is infectious and whose expertise is inspiring.
You can meet us and chat to us in person in our Tasting Events that we organise regularly. For details on upcoming events check <this link>.

Gyorgy (Hungarian for George), the face and founder of Danube Wines, has been a genuine wine enthusiast from a very young age. He’s determined to raise awareness to Hungary’s wine heritage and is committed to work closely together with some of the finest wine producers who share his vision and principles: Passion. Character. Distinction.
Gyorgy helped out in a small family vineyard in his teenage years, and over the years this became a passion that led him to work with wines in restaurants and hotels internationally. He successfully achieved the WSET Intermediate and Advanced qualifications in Bristol and began the Diploma course, gained work experience in the wine trade, and established his own business importing and selling Hungarian wine to the UK market: Danube Wines.
His friendly personality combined with a uniquely positive, pro-active approach when interacting with customers provides an informative service both on- and off-line.
Gyorgy’s goal is to make UK wine enthusiasts excited about Hungarian wine and leave them as passionate about Hungary’s food and wine as he is - if only for a few hours whilst enjoying an exquisite vintage.
