The history of wine dating back to the ancient times, when Romans brought vines to Pannonia. By the 5th century there were already existing vineyards on today’s territory of Hungary. Our ancestors brought their wine making knowledge from the East. Hungarian tribes were familiar with wine-making long time before the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin.
