About Us

Though our first bottles were produced in 2005, our history of winemaking started ages before that. Just like every family in our village, ours also had a small vineyard with a tiny cellar, where we were able to make just enough wine to satisfy our own needs. This tiny vineyard and cellar were our legacy, just like our passion and commitment to wines.

Our story, as a winery, started in 2003, when we decided to turn our heritage into an estate. It took us six years to develop the property into what it is today: a 12-hectare vineyard and a new cellar.

Our philosophy in the vineyards is ‘turning back to nature’. We want to cooperate with it, not to exploit its resources, to cultivate sustainably as well as to restore and maintain the highly valuable biodiversity. We cultivate our vineyards in an organic way all the way from planting, and we have been a certified organic farm since 2013. Our aim is to become biodynamic and thus reach the highest-level of cooperation and harmony with the nature and our universe. We have already been performing tasks in line with Moon phases and the constellations in many fields.

A szőlőhegy akkoriban sövénykerítéssel volt bekerítve, s oda csak egy kapun lehetett bejutni. Ura a hegybíró volt, aki éjjel-nappal ott tartózkodott, s “nagyon tekintélyes ember vót”. Két vagy három hegyőrt választott maga mellé, akik arra vigyáztak, hogy este kilenc után senki ne maradjon a hegyen. Aki mégis ott maradt, s rajtakapták, azt megbüntették: “lërótták a faluba, hogy ócska, alávaló ember”.

Tasting

We are always more than pleased to show you how we work and what we believe in, and we will try to make you capture the feeling that drives us every day. A pleasant wine tasting will give you an opportunity to get to know what our philosophy is, what tradition means to us, how we constantly strive for wine making that is as natural as possible, and undoubtedly we will also aim to pass on a bit of our commitment to you as well.

PREAMBLE

We Authentists hereby subscribe to the legacy of our ancestors, who lived on these lands and farmed them for thousands of years, growing grapes and making wine to delight the spirit and celebrate God's goodness. As their descendants, we want to use our native land to produce wines of consistent quality, so we can preserve this land and pass it on to our children healthy and beautiful.

We consider Pannonia, once part of the Roman Empire, to be the birthplace of our common wine growing culture. It was the Romans who lay the foundation of the laws that winemakers had to abide by, as well as the methods of wine production used by all the different wine-loving nations living between the Alps and Carpathians today.

As the passing of time became history, the community of the Central European nations was formed; and in good times and bad, through pain and joy, it survived to this day. The common spirit, as well as traditions and values shared by the peoples of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, was also the framework for wine and the traditions of its making. Today our history allows us to follow up on everything that people have created on this journey, through traditional winemaking, and the production of nature friendly, authentic wines.

The often too sudden transition from traditional viticulture and viniculture to modern procedures can overshadow, even destroy local vineyards and winery specificities, leading to the loss of identity for the wine growers. There was a knock-on effect in the style of wine produced as the old sloping vineyard plots were abandoned, resulting not only in the loss of authenticity, but in overgrown, unattractive hillsides where the vineyards had for centuries represented the genius loci of the landscape.

We unite here, in order to maintain an authentic viticulture and viniculture in the Danube region, sculpted by the 2,840 km long river. This region has always been a crossroads, not only of peoples, but also of the “Pontus” and the Western European grape varieties. This is where our solidarity and common spirit had been created; and where the indigenous grape varieties that unite and symbolize us have originated.

We recognize the importance of retaining both our individual and the shared identity, and we value the co-operation with wineries and regions that share our views and agree with the Charter of the Authentist.
