Attila Gere has been building his winery into one of the top estates in Hungary. It is located in the southern part of the country in the premium red wine region Villany.

For more than a decade Gere's KOPAR has defined the top shelf of contemporary Hungarian wine making. 52% Cabernet Franc, 46% Merlot and only 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Only made in the finest years with the selected grapes of the premium slopes of Villány (Kopár, Csillagvölgy, Konkoly).

Additional Information:

Country:

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
