The owner of Hungarian
Corner restaurant in The Hague Mr Marco van den Boomgaard said: “We only recently also created a winebar so that our guests can try all kinds of Magyar wines.”
H.E Mr. András
Kocsis, Ambassador of Hungary, opened the session saying: “By targeting all Dutch companies which sell wine we hope to gain more recognition of Hungarian wines in order to generate more sales in The Netherlands.
We have undertaken a very exiting task with my colleagues this evening, because contrary to the previous practice when we introduced selections from different wines regions, we have now focused on one particular wine region Tokaj.”
