As opposed to the prevalent model in the wine region, we have built the center of the estate right at the heart of our vineyards on the Fekete-hegy (Black Mountain) in Kisharsány. This move itself reflects our tight relationship to the whole winegrowing region and our own vineyards.
From the very beginning, our aim was to make the best possible wine that carries the characteristics of the Villány region. We have applied historical knowledge and experience and adjusted their use to match the challenges of contemporary winemaking. This philosophy is also reflected in our use of environmentally friendly solutions at the vineyards. Our 120- hectare large plantations established between the years of 1992 and 2004 face south or south-east at a density of 7,000 vines/hectare. Their yield is moderate: an average load of 40 hl/ha.
We shape our winemaking from harvest by keeping in mind the characteristics of the grapes and the year, without any fixed “recipe”. We are raising the grapes as if they were children, and help them fulfill themselves. Incoming grapes upon harvesting will undergo multiple sorting steps. Aging takes place in 225 litre barrels made of French and Hungarian oak as well as 15 beautiful storage barrels. Depending on the type and vintage, red wines spend 12-18 months in the barrel and leave the cellar after aging in bottles for at least 3-4 months.
