The National Council of Wine Communities Hungary (NCWCH) organized the most traditional wine tasting of producers for the 41st time. This National Wine Competition serves as the basis for the national quality selection system of Hungarian wines.
István Ipacs Szabó, Artor winemaker and multi-award-winning expert in Hungary, says, “Such recognitions obviously mean a lot. Alain and Valérie made it very clear to me their goal: to do everything possible to gradually produce a top-level wine. This is the confirmation of our first step!”. Valérie adds, “Our philosophy is very simple: what you drink helps define the moment. Just as champagne is exuberant and festive, good red wine is a guarantee of joy, warm conversations and captivating evenings. That’s the kind of experience we want to put on the table.”
