The Villány wine region is located in the southern part of Hungary, close to the Croatian border. It has a relatively mild continental climate with warm summers and cool winters, moderated by the nearby Dráva River. The region is characterized by hilly terrain with rich soils, ideal for viticulture.
Villány is known for producing full-bodied, rich red wines made from grape varieties such as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. The region also has a long history of cultivating the indigenous Kadarka grape, which is used to produce lighter-bodied red wines. Villány wines are typically aged in oak barrels, which adds complexity and depth to the wines.
In recent years, Villány has gained a reputation for its high-quality wines and has become one of the most prominent wine regions in Hungary. In addition to its red wines, Villány also produces white wines, including Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as sweet dessert wines made from the Furmint grape.
