Csongrád Wine Region

The sunniest wine region in Hungary

Csongrád Wine Region
Csongrád, Hungary

With around 2,000 hours of sunshine annually, Csongrád is the sunniest wine region in Hungary. Despite the abundant sunshine the climate is characterized by an uneven distribution of rain, winter snow and spring/fall frosts. Four main areas, Csongrád, Kistelek, Pusztamérges and Mórahalom, make up the 2,000-hectare Csongrád wine region. Wine making traditions in the region date back to the middle ages.

Similar to other wine regions in the Great Plains (Alföld), the Csongrád region produces table wines in large quantities, although some quality wines are also produced by smaller wineries, earning it the title of the "Town of Grape and Wine".

Grape Varieties

The dominant red wines are Kadarka, Kékfrankos and Zweigelt. From the whites Italian Riesling (Olaszrizling) and Kövidinka, a Hungarian variety, are noteworthy.
