Launch for Hungarian wine web business

05 April, 2011

A new online service has been founded specialising in selling Hungarian wines.

The hungarianwinesociety.co.uk site has been set up by Chris Bowling, who founded georgianwinesociety.co.uk two years ago.

Bowling said: “There are many similarities between Georgian and Hungarian winemaking.

“Both are rediscovering their vibrant wine cultures after suffering under Communism, both have a wealth of exciting grape varieties and styles, and the wines of both countries remain largely unknown in the UK.”

The Hungarian site is selling a range of red and white table wines, plus Tokaji.

It is promising to donate 10% of its profits to a Hungarian charity nominated by visitors to its Facebook site or Twitter followers, with the person nominating the winning charity being given a mixed case worth £200 as a reward.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
