The Bodri Cellars of Hungary's well known Szekszárd wine-growing region has inaugurated a HUF 730m cellar, owner István Bodri told MTI.
European Union and state funding covered half of the cost of Bodri Cellar, Bodri said.
The 1,800sqm cellar will be oufitted with equipment for making white wines and roses as well as a bottling line by the middle of 2011. Bodri's production capacity will increase from an annual 100,000-120,000 bottles to 150,000 as a result.
Bodri is also spending HUF 180m on an irrigation investment and HUF 200m to build a wine-tasting centre, Bodri said. Both investments are also supported with EU funding.
