Story: The winery has made Bikavér since 1991 with more or less the same proportion of the varieties. The first Bikavér was released in 1993, the year when Ferenc Vesztergombi was awarded the prestigious title “Winemaker of the Year”.
Kékfrankos gives the body and backbone of the wine, Cabernet Sauvignon adds spiciness and depth, Merlot is responsible for the soft and gentle character while Kadarka provides its soul.
