Sipon

Sipon is the Slovenian name for Furmint, the grape behind the acclaimed Hungarian sweet wine, Tokaji. In the 19th-early 20th Century, Furmint spread across the Austro-Hungarian empire, making its way to modern Slovenia. There, it is mainly vinified dry, making characterful white wines of outstanding complexity. Supposedly, the name “Sipon” is a corruption of the nickname Napoleon’s soldiers gave to this wine: “Si c’est bon” for "It’s so good".
