(Official) Report of an inquiry of the British Government in the year 1862, printed for the House of Commons, 1862: It appears certain that the Hungarian Wine Growers do not adulterate their Wines, indeed, they are so generally good, that they would certainly be deteriorated if alcohol were added. While possessing a great resem- blance to the Wines of Burgundy and the Rhiffe, the better Wines of Hungary have greater body and strength, and would be more likely to suit our taste. There is probably no country in which so great a proportion of good wine is made.P. 15. JOHN H. DAVIES, APOTHECARIES' HALL, TERRACE-ROAD, ABERYSTWYTH. ESTABLISHED IN THE YEAR 1820.
