Our partners

We are justifiedly proud of our partners who share our vision and mission. We are thankful for their support and are honored to work with them.

The co-operation we established with the M Dash Publishing, the Blue Lifestyle, the Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits, the Hungarian Tourism Agency and some top Hungarian wineries made possible to realize an unprecedented line - up behind the the Hungarian wines, to develop and assure a never-seen alliance and support, a strong, continuous, and focused presence of the Hungarian wines promotion in the US aiming to build their brand and facilitate their sales on the North-American market.

M DASH PUBLISHING is the owner of three national U.S. wine and spirits trade publications: The Tasting Panel Magazine, The SOMM Journal and The Clever Root

    1. The Tasting Panel Magazine is the most widely circulated trade publication in the beverage industry, reaching an audience of ten of thousands of key decision-makers every month and growing on an international scale. Manning the ship is renowned wine and spirits veteran Anthony Dias Blue as Editor-in-Chief and longtime wine and spirits Publisher and Editorial Director Meridith May. With their expertise, experience and esteem, they collectively have their finger on the pulse of the beverage industry, making for one of the most informative and cutting edge publications focusing on beverages, the beverage trade and the people who make the industry tick.

      The San Francisco International Wine Competition, North America's largest wine judging event, as well as the prestigious New York International Wine  San Francisco World Spirits Competition, are both related to The Tasting Panel Magazine.



    2. The SOMM Journal's editorial board is comprised of internationally-renowned wine writers, sommeliers and authorities, and the publication has aligned with top wine associations, institutions and educators throughout the U.S. and abroad.

      The SOMM Journal is a true hospitality industry publication with an academic angle and close working relationship with educational institutions. In its new informative yet entertaining format, the magazine will speak to future working chefs, restaurateurs, retailers, mixologists and wine professionals as much as it does to those already in the industry.

      With coverage focused 70% on wine and 30% on spirits, circulation and readership to reach over 75,000 readers bi-monthly the SOMM Journal offers content that sommeliers can geek out on – detailed pro les of international wine regions, wine and mixology programs at top restaurants, and industry trends and technology – without reading like a dry textbook.



    3. Recognized by the Media Industry Newsletter as one of 2016’s “Hottest Magazine Launches”, considered to be a Farm to Table Food Magazine, The Clever Root reaches a highly sophisticated and curious international audience of readers interested in food and beverage as well as related areas, including farming, environmental issues and sustainability.

      The Magazine aims to promote unique places of the world, present their cuisine based on the local ingredients, the wine to pair the dishes with and the top wine regions with their story to be told.

The Hungarian Tourism Agency is a state-owned national tourism marketing organisation. The aim of its activities is increasing the demand for Hungarian tourism by promoting inbound and domestic travels in order to enhance the development of the tourism industry. The company plays an active role in improving the business results of local service providers in tourism and would like to contribute to raise the prestige of the tourism profession by means of its activities.

Hungarian wines form an integral part of the country’s image, and a set of new measures has been revealed that is aimed at tapping into its potential.

The job of the Hungarian Tourism Agency in cooperation with the National Council of Vine-Growing Communities is to drum up worldwide publicity for the values of Hungarian wines, and to rev up the engine of local wine tourism.

Accordingly, a comprehensive wine marketing concept is integrated into the wider country image and the Agency co-ordinates the wine promotional programs, too.




Wine was introduced to Hungary by the Romans, and the country was known for its excellent wines until the devastation of World War II and the Communist era. Recently Hungarian wines have had a renaissance and garnering prizes on international competitions.

"Wine is a part of the history of countries, an expression of national character, a source of troubles and pleasures." 

Today Hungary has 22 designated wine regions, and they all have something of interest to anyone who appreciates fine scenery and wants to discover Hungary first hand. A visit to top vineyards and cellars can be combined with other activities, such as sailing, visiting thermal spas, playing golf or discovering the stunning countryside. Since Hungary is a fairly small country to visit you can easily take in several winemaking towns in the course of a week, either by travelling around or making day trips from Budapest.

In order to offer the North-American wine lovers a “Taste of Hungary”, we established long-term relationship with the top wineries of the Tokaj, Villány, Szekszárd and Eger Wine Regions and we are ready to provide support for branding, market building, promotion and importing of these fine wines across the ocean.
