Although the predominant soil is calcareous sandy, which is mostly derived from river sediments (mainly the Danube’s), brown forest soil, black earth (chernozem), pasture and alluvial soils are also found to a lesser extent.
The Csongrád and Kunság wine districts are located in the warmest and sunniest part of the country. The grape varieties grown on these alluvial and sandy soils are typically Rhein Riesling, Kövidinka, Kékfrankos and Zweigelt. The acids of the wines of the Great Plain are gentler than those grown in the mountains. Today, veritable bistro wines are made here in a fruity, easy-to-drink style. Although not the best known, the Hajós-Baja wine district is special. Its territory stretches along the Danube.
