Since you are reading this on our page, you probably don't need any convincing about what great stuff wine is. Still, allow us to put your mind even more at rest. Recent research, funded by the Purdue Research Foundation and published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry has shown that red wine, grapes and other fruits contain a compound which is able to block the cellular process which allows fat cells to develop and grow. This, they hope, may lead to it's later use in methods for controlling obesity. 


Young Hungarian winemakers are never happy to rest on their laurels, working and experimenting day-in and day-out to bring ever more exciting and titillating experiences to lovers of fine wines. To this end Happy Hungarian Wine winemaker Gábor Kiss has decided to gradually move over to using only organic methods in the production of his wines - beginning in 2012 - in order to more fully bring out the attributes of his grapes and terroir.
