Community of Szekszárd
With the collapse of communism winemakers found themselves in a new situation: they were no longer told from above what to do and how to do it; they had to make their own decisions and take responsibilty for their actions. This proved to be a long process full of challenges and winemakers had to learn how to cooperate and come to agreements. There are lots of issues that cannot be dealt on an individual level; tackling these issues needs regionwide consensus. Cooperation among Szekszárd winemakers started quite early and it included wine tasting sessions to establish a more consistent style for the region.
