the smallest wine region of Hungary
The smallest wine region is located around an extinct volcano.
There were times when its fame preceded even that of Tokaj.
Introducing and a little bit explain the wines of the area, we would like to cite the following short thought from a very famous Hungarian writer, Béla Hamvas:
"Though every wine bears a social character and reveals its real nature when drunk in company, the wine of Somló is the drink of the lonely. It is so full of the oil of the ecstasy of creation that it is only to be drunk in devoted, definitely quiet, balanced loneliness. It is the wine of the wise, of those people who at last have learnt the greatest knowledge, serenity."
(Area appr.: 690 hectares)
