Unusual grape varieties galore

The last month or so has seen a myriad of wine-tasting events or opportunities – in Budapest, Pécs, Vác, Vienna – in which I was on a voyage of discovery of unknown (to me, at least) grape varieties. Many of these varieties were local, auctocton, unusual or ’forgotten’. Forget Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Co and take a voyage of discovery into local, unusual grape varieties. Try a glass of:

Whites: Kövidinka, Ezerjó, Pintes, Zoldfülű, Mézes Fehér, Szerémi Szerelem, Nektár, Zeus

Reds: Turan, Fekete Leanyka, Medina
