Winegrowers to make less but better wine from this year's grapes

Hungary's winegrowers expect to make less but better wine this year, Csaba Horváth of HNT, Hungary's main winegrowers' association, announced on Friday.

The harvest, which is nearly complete but for a few areas in the Tokaj region in northeast Hungary, is expected to yield about 510,000 tons of grapes, which will be made into 300 million liters of wine, some 20%-25% less than usual, Horváth said. However, good weather late in the summer will make this year's wines exceptional, he added.
Because of the smaller harvest, grape prices have risen 30%-50% from all-time lows last year, with prices for the Szürkebarát and Villány Cabernet varieties rising the most.
