Three days in Hungary

I have fond memories of importing Hungarian wines in bulk in my early days in the wine trade so was thrilled to have the chance to visit the country to see just how far things have come.

Along with a group of experienced wine tasters and commentators such as Oz Clarke, Anthony Rose and Caroline Gilby MW, I made the trip to Eger in the far northeast, a first for many of us. And the trip would not be complete without visiting Tokaj
