I’ve got a nice little essay about “the Hungarian wine story” in the current issue of Imbibe magazine. If you happen to find yourself near a good newsstand or Barnes & Noble, flip to the very last page.
Or just spend five bucks and buy the darn thing because it’s full of really great writing on interesting subjects: the new speakeasy bars trend, a great overview of American-made sake, a look at home brewers who are making the leap to going pro, a type of tea that can cost thousands of dollars a pound, and a cover story on Scotch—everything you ever wanted to know. Plus where else are you going to find reviews of home coffee roasters, a side-by-side taste test of absinthe, and an interview about what Rachel Maddow likes to drink? (Easy cocktails and mass market American beer.)
Here are a few other things that came out of my trip to Hungary:
Biking in Eastern Europe
Touring Europe’s Unheralded Wine Trails
