Hungarian “Tokaji” Wines Soon to be Available in Illinois and Chicago

We are pleased to announce that consumers will soon be able to purchase premium wines from the Tokaji region of Hungary in the state of Illinois. Terra Selections Inc. is now the official Illinois distributor of wines from New Wines of Hungary, a consortium of high-quality wineries from the Tokaji region.

Since 2016 we have been working with New Wines of Hungary (“NWOH”). Our mandate for New Wines of Hungary is to identify wine distributors in Illinois and eventually Colorado. We conducted an extensive search and networking on behalf of NWOH. Through our networking efforts we met Elite Personal Chefs, a company of executive chefs based in Chicago.

Thanks to the introduction of Elite Personal Chefs and their CEO Austin Yancey, we were introduced to Terra Selections and negotiated an agreement between New Wines of Hungary and Terra Selections. The next step in the relationship would be to start placing dry “Furmint” wines from Hungary in select restaurants across Chicago. So stay tuned for new developments!
