Hungarian wines and spirits in spotlight at Malux spring tasting

Published:  05 February, 2016

Hungarian food-and-wine wine specialist Malux will be showcasing around 80 wines and spirits from 11 small, family producers at its spring London tasting in March.

The tasting is targeted at both the on- and off-trade, and a number of key winemakers will be present to talk about their wines, including Laszlo Szeremley from Szeremley Winery, one of the first producers with which Malux partnered.

Malux was founded in 2002 by Hungarian businessman, Lucien Lanci, who emigrated to the UK in the 1950s.

Audrey Zarach, Lanci's daughter, who joined Malux in 2007, said: "For us, it's personal. Hungarian wines had virtually no presence in the UK but my father's original manufacturing business took him back to his home country a number of times a year and he began to build long-standing relationships with some fabulous producers.

"Today, we are continuing his crusade to get people to recognise Hungary's unique grape varieties and qualities."

Wineries exhibiting at the tasting come from a range of different Hungarian regions, including Tokaj, Mátra, Eger, Balatonelle and Pannonhalma.

The Agardi, Zwack and Korona distilleries will also be attending.

The Malux tasting takes place in central London on March 7 between 10:30am and 6:00pm.
