Furmint is a variety of wine grape from the Pontian Balcanica branch of Vitis vinifera, used for white wines.
The name Furmint is taken from the word "froment" for the wheat-gold color of the wine it produces. While it is possible that the grape is native to Hungary, the grape was likely brought to Hungary in the 13th century during the reign of King Béla IV.
Today, Furmint is most widely grown in Hungary, particularly in the Tokaj-Hegyalja wine region where it is used to produce single-varietal dry wines as well as being the principal grape in the better known Tokaji dessert wines.
