If we had to name the most famous red wine in Hungary, it would undoubtedly be the Kopar from Attila Gere. This bright, rich red wine from the Villány region was the first in its category and led the way for a generation of winemakers to make bold, full-bodied red wines in the area. While the first vintages were cabernet sauvignon-based and heavy in oak use, the latest vintages of Kopar are an elegant cabernet franc-cabernet sauvignon-merlot blend that is fruit-forward yet balanced, showing the best of Villány’s warm soils and an excellent vintage. Kopar is still one of the best wines in its category and shows just how far Hungarian winemaking has come in the past decades. Aged in barrels for 16-20 months.
