Story: Béres Vineyards is located in the village of Erdőbénye, one of the oldest settlements of Tokaj wine region. This wine is named after Magita, a brave and young girl, whose legend takes place in Erdőbénye during the Turkish invasion. According to the stories, a wealthy landowner’s daughter, Magita’s house was a shelter where – risking her life – she hid Hungarian refugees. Two Turkish nobilities, Don and Onok fell in love with Magita, who – using their blind love – invited them and locked them in the cellar. The angry Turkish troops took a cruel revenge: spurned the locals and burnt the village down. Magita was buried alive as a punishment. However, she had another Turkish admirer, the old Suta, who dug the grave above a cellar so that Magita survived digging herself downwards. Unfortunately, the two fooled nobilities returned, and when noticing the escape of Magita, they began to pursue her. Poor Magita drowned in the lake near the village, and since the two Turks chased her adamantly, they were drowned as well. After they learnt about the death of their two comrades, the desperate Turkish troops


Fresh, lively, yet rich and complex, unique sweet wine. A true Tokaj dessert wine with refreshing character due to its vibrant acidity and zesty flavours.
