  • A wine tour of Hungary

    2010-07-29

    Going on a wine tour is a time-honored romantic tradition, and a popular choice for newlyweds planning a honeymoon. Yet travelers don't have to head to Tuscany and Bordeaux to enjoy a great glass of wine. There are new vineyards and flavors popping up all over the world, and perhaps no place is a better example of that than Tokaj, Hungary.

    While Tokaj might not be as well-known as rival European winemaking regions, it is actually the oldest certified wine region in Europe, according to the New York Times. What many travelers are discovering is that the road less-traveled is actually the best tasting. And the regions laid-back and uncrowded nature appeals to couples looking for a relaxing trip.

    "You can taste the wines right where they're made," Carolyn Banfalvi, a wine writer, told the news source. "There’s a real range of wines in Tokaj. There are the sweet wines that everybody thinks about first, but there’s also the excellent dry wines, which are becoming more and more well known."

    And while travelers can taste fine imported wines from Bordeaux and Tuscany in many wine shops, the region of Tokaj is not yet popular enough to have many wines make their way stateside. That means that every tasting is a new discovery of flavors.

    Couples who love wine will be taken with Tokaj's offerings, but it doesn't hurt that the area is eminently scenic and beautiful as well.
