HUNGARY: ITS FINE WINES AND WINEMAKERS was shortlisted for the Louis Rodererer International Wine Book of the Year. For centuries Tokaj was the most sought after of the great wines of the world. Credited with aphrodisiacal and life—saving qualities it was the ultimate gift from monarch to monarch. David Copp tells the story of the phenomenal recovery of Tokaj and all Hungary's great vineyards after 1989. The author book briefly recounts the historical background for those less familiar with Hungarian history but focuses his attention on the group of outstanding winemakers who set about restoring Hungary's reputation for fine wines with the help of French, Spanish, German, British and American investment. This book is a classic of its kind and will be of particular interest to those of Hungarian origin and wine enthusiasts everywhere. Apart from Tokaj the author deals with the great red wine regions of Eger, Villany and Szekszard and the white wines of Lake Balaton and the North West. But the real heroes are the men and women who brought the great Hungarian wines back to life again, and who continue to develop them often with the assistance of their own sons and daughters.
