Mór Region: A Hidden Treasure

1 minute read

Mór is an undiscovered region, little known outside Hungary. Mór, which is pronounced like ‘more’ in English, is located between Budapest and Neszmély, between the Vértes and the Bakony hills. It’s one of the smaller regions—just 650 hectares—and it produces exclusively white wines. The flagship variety here, and the most widely planted grape, is the indigenous Ezerjó—which makes a dry wine with both high alcohol and acid contents. Its name can be roughly translated as ‘a thousand blessings or good things’. Mór was once well known for making a sweet Aszú-like dessert wine from good vintages of Ezerjó. Wines from Mór are mainly fresh, floral, and aromatic, and are meant to drink young. Other varieties found here include Leányka, Tramini, Rizlingszilváni, Zöldveltelini, Irsai Olivér, and Chardonnay. This is a picturesque region, with traditional old cellar rows, many hobby winemakers. Several annual wine celebrations showcase the important of local traditions.
