OUR SPECIAL OFFER
The Bakos family
What could be the foundation of a successful winery? We are enthusiastic of the land. Good vineyards, carefully cultivated vines and a dedicated, professionally trained team. The importance of the human factor that consciously shapes its environment arises even in the context of the much-mentioned terroir – a term that refers primarily to the geographical characteristics of the place where the grape is born.
Badacsony wine region
It belongs to one of our oldest, most famous, historical wine regions with a thousand-year old Hungarian, Celtic and Roman past.
The word Badacsony itself goes back to the distant past: our relatives, the Uigur people, who live in Western China, use the word “badacsony” for vine arbour.
Taste the hill!
Our wines are made locally in Csobánc hill with hand harvest and they are processed immediately on the vintage day.
Our purpose is to maintain the biological balance of our vineyard. Green harvesting in order to improve the quality of wines and medium high-trained cordon cultivation method.
We produce neutral, hand-made, low intervention, authentic wines in small quantities. Our wines are protected designations of origin (Csobánc), dry white wines.
The rich, volcanic soil of Csobánc Hill enriched our wines with minerality and also with a special, flowery and almond-like character.
