Welcome to our latest installment of #WinephabetStreet brought to you by Dracaena Wines and Trio North Wildwood. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I work our way through the wine world one letter each month. We discuss the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.

V  is for Villány

Hungary, although relatively a small country, is divided into 6 main wine regions. These regions are further broken down into 22 sub regions. Villány is part of the Pannon Region and is located about 2 1/2 hours south of Budapest. Located practically walking distance to the Croatian border, it is Hungary’s most southern wine region and one of its most prestigious. Known for their reds and rosés, Villány has a  sub-Mediterranean climate, with long, dry summer days and mild winters. Villány was originally inhabited under the name of  villám, which means lightning in Hungarian.
