Who is Malux? - Your gateway to genuine Hungarian food and wines.

Lucien Lanci came to Britain from Hungary in the 1950's when he harnessed his drive and passion to become a successful business man producing and importing for leading department stores. Back then packets of Paprika were sent from relations in Hungary and sausages and wines were simply not available. Knowledgeable about bringing only the best to market, and the stringent quality and continuity requirements of British department stores, Lucien's winemaker friends urged him to turn his passion to the wine and food he loves. Teaming up with his friends the country's principal wineries, the first ever paprika producing mill established in 1881 and an outstanding sausage house Malux Hungarian Food and Wine has born.
What started as a hobby in 2002 has since flourished.
In 2007 Lucien's daughter Audrey joined him. Having had a career in fashion, first designing her own label, moving to California then back in the UK working in sales for a supplier to one of the UK's largest store groups. Having a family changed life and Audrey joined her father visiting the vineyards, learning all about them and was struck by the infectious passion of these amazing winemakers. Audrey looks after the sales side of the business and her aim is to spread this intoxicating love of Hungarian wine allover the UK!
