Currently we are exploring the characters and potentials of 5 vineyards in which we possess 17 hectares of land.
'Istenhegy' (Hill of God), Rátka
The soil was created when volcanic activity mixed with hot water turned into quartzite rocks. A significant proportion of the north-western part of the vineyard is a zeolite mix. We have found a fossilised axe from the Stone Age between the rows in the southern part. Vine training is mid-height cordon.
Wine: Istenhegy Furmint 2015
Almost identical to Istenhegy in terms of soil and rocks. It is worth mentioning that there is a clearly visible trace of a geyser at the southern slope of the vineyard, and there is a significant amount of bentonite mineral. At the top of the hill over the quartzite rocks the actual soil is shallow and obsidian; wood opal has been found there. Vine training is mid-height or high cordon.
