Wine Intelligence:

"Bull's blood"—or Egri bikavér
is a popular, well-known dry red wine from Hungary. It is made primarily from kékfrankos (the same grape as blaufränkisch) and kadarka grapes, grown in Eger, which is about halfway between Budapest and Tokaj. Legend has it that the wine dates back to the mid-16th century when the fortress of Eger, which belonged to the Magyars (ancestors of modern Hungarians), was besieged by Turks. Men, women, and reportedly even children fought the Turks fiercely, drinking huge amounts of red wine in the process. Allegedly, when the Turks encountered the Magyars' ferocious fighting skills and saw their red-stained faces, they retreated, fearing that the Magyars obtained their prowess by drinking the blood of bulls.

Because it’s Halloween, we thought we’d explain: What makes orange wine orange?
In making so-called “orange wine”, rather than removing skins after white grapes are pressed (as is common when making white wine), the juice is fermented in contact with the skins and stems. During the enzymatic breakdown that follows long contact with skins and stems, juice that was formerly white is turned orange. This not only contributes to orange wine’s vivid hue, but also adds tannin as it does with red wine. Orange wine can trace its roots to the Republic of Georgia where it has been made for over 6,000 years, often in qvevri (pronounced KEV-ree), which are large clay pots that are used for fermentation. After being sealed (often with beeswax), qvevri are buried and left underground for about six months.
