Frittmann wines are made in the southern part of Kunság wine region in a small town called Soltvadkert, in a family winery. The parents and also the grandaparents grew grapes and made wines in Kunság which is the biggest wine region of Hungary. The new generation follows the route: the two youngest sons study oenology
and are now involved in the every day life of the winery. Frittmann Winery started their enterprise with the vineyards inherited from the parents, and increased its size, therefore the family winery has turned into one of the most significant wineries of Hungary. The Frittmanns have 60 hectares of grapes which were planted by themselves, the training system is the tratitional stake-support training and cordon trained vine, and besides they integrate selected, high quality grapes from neighbouring grape growers.
In 2007 János Frittann was awarded the presigious Winemaker of the Year – it was the first time that a winemaker from The Great Plain of Hungary received the award, and it was breakthrough for Kunság region, which had a rather negative reputation before. The renewed winery building was completed in the same year, it includes a barrique and a big barrel aging store room, a tasting room and some guest rooms. In 2013 a wineshop and a new, spectatular show case winery was added so that the visitors can learn the process of winemaking and can choose the wines to buy in a nice shop in pleasent atmosphere. The other prestigious award, The Winery of the Year was given to the Frittmans in 2015.
