Introduction

By Paul Caputo

Known as the Great Plain of Hungary, the Kunság region is finally enjoying a small quality renaissance, and for those producers tired of fighting against their region’s reputation as a source of unexciting bulk wine it is a welcome development. Covering more than 24,000 hectares of vineyard and sandwiched between the Danube and River Tisza, Kunság is Hungary’s largest wine producing area by some distance. In a region of such enormity, it is inevitable that its significant output of light and simple wine characterises it more than the handful of boutique wineries crafting artisan products.
