Gulyas highlights Hungary’s champagne production

Gergely Gulyas, the head of the Prime Minister's Office, attended the 5th Champagne Conference and Festival in Etyek, near Budapest, on Thursday.

In his address at the event, Gulyas praised Hungarian growers’ efforts over the past one to two decades “to make Hungarian champagne competitive with France’s Champagne” and said Hungarian products were doing well in an international competition.

While Europe in general drinks less wine, “drinking champagne has become the trend in Hungary,” which gives impetus to the sector, Gulyas said. But the young generations “tend not to prefer the beverages their parents and grandparents used to like” which poses a great challenge to producers, he added.
