Hungary's wine growing regions tend to be in cooler climates, therefore it's a perfect place for Pinot. Its best growing regions are situated with southern exposures to maximize ripening potential. Our Pinot Grigio is crafted from grapes grown on the gentle slopes of Hungary's Matra region, which lies northwest of Budapest and just southeast of Hungary's famed Tokaj wine region. Known for its mix of limestone and volcanic soils and southern exposure, this area is a major wine producing region, a perfect climate for growing "Szürkebarat", or as we know it, Pinot Grigio. Wines in this area are often made in hand-dug cellars built right into the mountain side, guaranteeing a cold fermentation process. Our distinctive medium-bodied Pinot Grigio has floral aromas and citrus flavors. Its soft finish makes this truly a food-friendly wine.
