Noble wine named after Duke Montenuovo Nandor, who owned parts of our vineyards at the beginning of the 20th century.
This wine is a well balanced blend with a golden mean between the full-bodied and the lively-fruity styles. Its bright, fruity upbeat is filled with diverse scents in which bourdeaux varieties come together in a harmonising accord completed with spiciness of the syrah.
It’s complexity makes it a good match with many kinds of dishes, thus a favourite of the best restaurants.
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.

Jolly Joker of gastronomy. It’s complexity makes it a good match with many kinds of dishes, thus a favourite of the best restaurants.
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.
