Pécs is one of Hungary’s warmest growing areas, with a sub-Mediterranean climate and a protracted growing season, just like its more famous neighbor Villány. Pécs is more known as a lively (and beautiful) university town than a wine growing region, and it was a European Capital of Culture in 2010. Although wine from this region was famed as far as the Royal Court in the Middle Ages, many of the former vineyard areas have been swallowed up by the growing city, and only a small percentage of its potential growing area is planted with vines. The university in Pécs boasts one of the country’s foremost research institutes for viticulture and oenology, which has the sixth largest vine gene bank in the world and cultivates some 1,500 varieties in its vineyards. This includes ancient Hungarian varieties it’s trying to revive, such as Csókaszőlő, as well as modern crosses, such as Jázmin and Zenit.

The Pécs wine region stretches 80 kilometers from east to west in Baranya County along the sheltered southern slopes of the Mecsek Hills, the rolling hills around Szerderkény and Mohács, and the southeastern slopes of the Zselic Hills. The 673 hectares of vineyards are generally found at altitudes of 110 to 300 meters above sea level. Kadarka used to be king here, but has now been almost completely displaced by white varieties, primarily Olaszrizling, Chardonnay, Riesling and Zöldveltelini. The acidic, iron-rich brown earth and warm climate yields full-bodied wines with plenty of alcohol and somewhat low acidity. They frequently also contain some residual sugar. However, despite the dominance of white varieties, the region’s mild climate and warm summers mean that red varieties also ripen well, producing rich red wines with elegant tannins. Cirfandli is the region’s flagship variety, and its exclusive domain here in Hungary. It can make wines in both dry and sweet styles. Pécsi Cirfandli has a delicately floral nose with a spicy palate, but generally lacks the acidity and structure to age well.
