Our Motivation | Fine Wines Association was established with the goal of educating wine lovers, wine professionals and visiting tourists about the merits of Central and Eastern European wines and in particular Hungarian wines. Hungary is a country with a remarkable history in viticulture and wine production but when it comes to international markets it is still only an up-and-coming player. The rich diversity of local varieties and terroirs has not been explored by the rest of the world yet.

Why FWA? | Consistency, high quality and individual character – these are the key words to describe the work of the members of the Fine Wines Association in past decades and this is what the words “Fine Wines” in the name refer to. They believe that by working together and helping one another, selflessly sharing expertise and professional connections is the best way to make their wines and wine regions appreciated abroad. This spirit of cooperation is expressed by the word „Association”.
Our Shared Values | Together they provide a diverse, comprehensive and easy to grasp cross-section of quality wine production in Hungary. Their shared values are based on being small or medium sized estates, their family centered attitude, their respect for local traditions of viticulture and winemaking, in harmony with a relentless spirit of innovation. Building communities and striving for cooperation are highly esteemed values shared by all FWA members.
