Hungarian Friend of The Winemakers Award

Interesting email just received – much to my surprise I have been nominated for this award by some leading Hungarian winemakers. This is incredibly flattering because, while I have spoken up for Hungarian wines on many occasions, I have also been a critical friend at times, which not everyone has taken well to.
