Erhard and Evelyne Heumann founded this Family-owned artisanal winery in 2003 in Hungarys most famous red wine region - Villány. They took the chance to realize their dream - to produce fine wines offered at reasonable prices. Their passion for wine has born fruits resulting in numerous international awards and high scores in tastings.
Due to the terroir (e.g. climate, soil, and growing season), the region is perfectly suited for red varieties. In almost every year, the grapes ripen optimally. Cabernet Franc and the indigenous Kékfrankos (Blaufraenkisch) are the flagship grapes that have perfectly adapted to the terroir. Both varieties result in outstanding wines. For different international wine experts (e.g. Jancis Robinson, MW) Villány produces the best single varietal Cabernet Francs worldwide. The other international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah profit from the climatic conditions too.
The vineyards are mainly south-exposed or situated on a plateau. Their treatment is nature-oriented (e.g. no Glyphosate). Soil is loess and to a lesser content clay with a varying content of limestone and dolomite. Climate is continental with Mediterranean influence – cold winters but relatively hot summers. Yields are low at max. 30-40 hl/ha. Over 90% of the vineyards (12 ha) owe the Premium status of the DHC (Districtus Hungaricus Controllatus) Villány. Production is around 30000 bottles / year.
