The wine-growing region is in the southwest Hungary not far from the border too Croatia, It is one of the oldest and best in the country and is often referred to as the "Bordeaux of Hungary" because excellent red wines are made here. In the 19th century, the red wine from the Kadarka grape was exported to many European countries. Great composers, for example, were the composer Franz Liszt (1811-1886), who visited the area several times, and Pope Pius IX. (1792-1878). The Pope said that wine preserves his health and spirit. Here, as the only area next to Eger the traditional red wine bull's blood (Bikavér) are produced. The continental climate is characterized by dry summers with lots of sunshine and strong winds and long, mild winters. The vineyards on loess soils cover 2,300 hectares.
