The Mátraalja wine region is a half hour ride from Budapest and next to the famous Eger wine region. On the southern slopes of the Mátra mountains (translated as Mátraalja) wine growing began in the 11th century. The soil, the climate and the beneficial influence of the immediately adjacent Mátra hills create a special microclimate where lovers of aromatic white wines with fine acidity can find a real paradise. We know Hungarian is impossible to pronounce, but trust us, this is a beautiful wine made in the traditional style with a full, lush body. Resembles an Alsatian Pinot Gris rather than an Italian Pinot Grigio. Great with a simply roasted whole chicken.
