Ninety-two wines from the southernmost wine-producing region in Hungary(Villány) were analyzed for their polyphenolic content by high performance liquidchromatography (HPLC). Our results show that wine variety or vintage year could not bedistinguished based on polyphenol content, but winery origin could be. Resveratrolconcentration is mainly dependent on variety and vintage year. The “human factor” (i.e.,winemaking style and technology) seems to be more decisive for the polyphenoliccomposition of red wines than other factors, such as variety and vintage year. View Full-Text
