The aim of the Hungarian Tourism Agency is to promote Hungarian wine and wine tourism at home and abroad. It is tasked with interpreting the values and unique messages of Hungarian wine and our wine regions for both professionals and the general public, while also ensuring the visibility of the country’s producers and wine tourism destinations through the provision of a common platform. .
Its aim is to showcase the general character of Hungarian wine as well as its diversity, not only by transmitting basic knowledge but also by communicating the sector’s most important achievements and news. It carries out these activities in collaboration with the National Council of Wine Communities, the Agricultural Marketing Centre, The Ministry of Agriculture and, last but not least, with market players and wineries.
