I am trying to find non-tokay Hungarian wine in Chicago....Anyone know of a place that sells Hungarian wine?

    Try Sam's or Binny's, the two biggest wine chains in the Chicago area. You can look up wines they carry on their websites ( www.samswine.com and www.binnys.com ), and both include the ability to search by origin.

      I've never looked at the wines but they do have a bunch. I go for the sausages. This is the retail outlet for a Hungarian food distributor. I think they have a web site.

        Garden Fresh Market has wide selection of eastern European wines, you may want to try them.

          Do you know which location? I called the one closest to me in the city and they don't sell wine.

            Andy's Fruit Market on Kedzie has a good selection of Eastern Eurpopean wines. I'm pretty sure you can find Ekri Bikiver (Bulls Blood) and things like that there.

              Any idea on who might sell the higher end Hungarian varietals - from producers like Bock or Gere?

              The Garden Fresh on Skokie Boulevard in Northbrook sells wine. No idea about the selection.
