’Hétszőlő’ means seven best parcels of vinelands on the Tokaj-Montain. These seven parcels were united in 1502 by the aristocrat Garai family. This became a first class single vineyard in the world’s first official vineyard classification in 1772. Currently Tokaj-Hétszőlő Vineyards works on 55 hectares which is situated basically in Tokaj Town, at the most southern part of Tokaj Region. Here we have the perfect conditions for producing excellent quality of Aszú wines mostly thanks to the two rivers and the high number of sunny hours. We also have the great cru-s to have beautiful dry single vineyard Furmint wines.
From 1991, when the company was reestablished and the vineyards were replanted, our company decided to work in the most natural way. Since 2009 we have been working organically on our 55 hectares by Hungária Öko-Garancia. The entire 55 hectares will get the official certificate in about one year. We are working only with our own grapes which are always harvested and selected by hand. Our production – depending from the vintage – is between 150.000 – 200.000 bottles / year.
From 2009 the owner is Domaine Reybier group which also owns Cos d’Estournel in Bordeaux region.
