1 February - International Furmint Day
The name Furmint may have been taken from the word froment for the wheat-gold color of the wine it produces. While it is possible that the grape was brought to Hungary in the 13th century during the reign of King Béla IV,ampelographers believe that the grape is likely native to the region.
Of all the grapes in all the wines in all the world, furmint is probably my favourite. Grown in Hungary and neighbouring Slovenia and Slovakia for more than 500 years, it is particularly associated with the Tokaj region and its famous sweet wines, but recently has found favour in its dry iterations.
Hungary's most famous dessert wine is Tokaji Aszú, the legendary sweet elixir. It can only be spoken in the superlative about this wine, as it is a medicine, a real nectar. The name Tokaji is used for labelling wines from this wine district.
