We produce wines from our self-established, 100-hectare vineyard in Eger wine region.
We harvest grapes from the perfect terrain of Nagy-Eged, Mezei-Öreg, Áfrika, Vidra and Mészhegy hills of Eger; the Tekenőhát, Kőkötő and Csókás hills of Noszvaj; the Juszalagos hill of Novaj; and the Nagyvölgy-tető hill of Szomolya. We have started to replace the older plantations, and as a new experiment, we have planted Cabernet Dorsa variety. Our most recent plantation is in Nagy-Eged in Eger where we established a plantation with the varieties needed to produce the Nagy-Eged Eger Bikavér Grand Superior wine.
Our winery is located in Noszvaj, 12 km from the center of Eger. The 2,000 m2 cellar, which was once an estate manor, was carved out by hand into the volcanic tuff mountain. We extended the old cellar with a new, 2,200 m2 cellar system that was also carved into the volcanic tuff hill, but with a machine. The temperate and balanced climate of the cellar provides ideal conditions for wine aging.
Every year we renew our technology with internationally recognized modern and superior quality equipment. This is not only true for our winery but also for our viticulture.
Our only goal is to attain the highest quality so that we can create a specialty each year that will enhance our selection.
Our wines can be found primarily in the exclusive restaurants and hotels of Hungary, but you can also find them in Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, China, South-Korea and Taiwan and now in United Kindom as well.
