Hungarian wine has a history dating back to at least Roman times. Outside of Hungary, the best-known wines are the white dessert wineTokaji and the red wine Bull's Blood of Eger (Egri Bikavér).
Only three European languages have words for wine that are not derived from Latin: Greek, Turkish and Hungarian. Records carved in a Runic alphabet used by ancient Hungarians have words for wine derived from Turkic.

Most of the production was of white wine.
