Our lovable merlot captivates with its lively and concentrated character.
Nice sip with elegant and round structure and soft tannins.
Exuberantly fruity wine packed with red berries and followed by barrel spices (cocoa, mint and cedar).
Every drop is round and soul warming.
From the outset we believe wine and art belong together. We asked seven contemporary Hungarian writers and poets to draw inspiration from the premium wines of Vylyan Winery. From the essence of poems and short stories the creating hand conjured up artistic drawings, and we now present the result to the world on the Vylyan bottles. The drawings reflect the soul of the wines on paper, as the artists see them.

We recommend it with grilled meats, roasts and most meals with a fruit side dish.
Vegetation started early in 2016. We got luck and did not have any extremity, the vines were not frightened and the summer was pleasant, without heat alerts and with enough wet. We started the harvest on the 1st of September and the ideal, warm, dry “late summer” weather lasted till the middle of October. The balanced growth delivered concentrated aromas, the harvested grape was well-balanced with good acidity and sugar level.
