Hungary's wine 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 inaugural Octavin Pinot Noir is crafted from grapes grown in Sopron, in the foothills of the Alps, next to Austria's Burgenland wine region, and from
Balatonboglari, a popular local wine region also referred to as Hungary's "Riviera". These up-and-coming wine regions have a long viticulture heritage that is still being rediscovered following Hugary's emergence from Communist rule
in the late 1980s. Utilizing traditional techniques like cold fermentation that maximize color and and barrel aging in Hungary's unique Aszok Hungarian oak barrels to optimize fruit intensity, the wines present with earthy red current and black cherry aromas. It's a medium-bodied red wine with notes of cranberry and rhubarb, with a lingering, creamy finish.

By eliminating heavy glass and expensive cork and closures, we reduce the cost of packaging and shipping, and pass on those savings to you.
