For years, wines from Eastern Europe were all considered sub-par. Even though countries like Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia once boasted honorable wine making traditions–some dating as far back as 2,000 years–these were put on “pause” under decades of communism when all they bottled were supermarket wines mass-produced in state-run farms. With the fall of the wall and the progression of these new economies, the bounty of the fertile crescent is again resplendent. Taste through exceptional wines from Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Turkey and Greece.
