Story: As our chief winemaker, Ákos Kamocsay put it into words: 2017 is an almost perfect vintage. We did not miss the 70 mm rainfall in the middle of the harvest, but in spite of it we could pick ripened, rich grapes with high sugar content from the best vineyards. And after tasting the wines we can admit that yes, it was a great vintage
