THE HOME OF VOLCANOS
Our oldest Welschriesling grapes was planted on our estate then.
Our Pinot gris vines were planted then.
In the October of 2013 we bought our first area, which was a mixed plantation vineyard with a ruined house, a plough-land and a field. Later we bought another four smaller areas, planted wih Pinot gris, Welschriesling and Grüner Veltliner.
We purchased a new area which was planted with Welschriesling, a place with an arched cellar built in 1822 at 17 Csobánc Hill, which has become the center of our winery.
This grape variety has always had a great tradition and history around Lake Balaton and it was mentioned as “Szigeti” in this region.The “Szigeti” name derives from the word “Szigliget”. The Furmint arrived to Szigliget (to the “Szigeti “ Hill) from Tokaj Wine Region and it has spread under the name of “Szigeti”. For communities around Lake Balaton, the brand has obtained Szigliget as a place of origin.
The plantation of our Pinot Blanc, which is white member of the pinot grape family. Its closest relatives are Pinot noir and Pinot gris (Szürkebarát). Its German and Hungarian names “Weissburgunder” or “Fehérburgundi” refer to its origin. In our experience this grape variety feels great and prospers on Csobánc Hill.
We produce traditional, protected designation of origin, hand-crafted terroir wines which are suitable for long aging.
Our basalt, neutral wines are made from carefully selected, fully ripened, hand harvested, 100% varietal grapes, which are processed with care immediately on the vintage day. The low intervention must are fermented in steel tanks. After 6-8 months of aging we bottle the wine locally by hand.
The wines are aged in bottles for another 1.5 – 2 years in our cellars in Csobánc Hill, then – after hand-labeling and encapsulating – the wines go to the wine lovers’ glasses. Our wines show the typical characters of the Badacsony Wine Region like salty, mineral, almond and floral notes. These elegant and noble authentic terroir wines genuinely bear the taste of Csobác Hill.
