Sabar Wine House

Badacsony wine region, which is situated north of Lake Balaton, the largest lake of Europe, is not only a wine region of breathtaking beauty, but also one of the oldest wine growing areas of Hungary. Sabar Wine House, an ambitious, dynamically growing wine estate produces its volcanic wines here, in Badacsony region. The winery takes its name from Sabar Hill of 217 meters high, just near the village of Káptalantóti – it’s one of the smallest of the mountains of Balaton National Park, however regarding the terroir, it’s one of the best with great potential. The centre of Sabar estate, and the majority of its vineyards are located here.

Sabar Wine House was founded in 2009, and since then its territories have grown up to 7 hectares, and they have renewed and refilled two cellars of Sabar Hill with wine – ensuring that life would return to this wonderful hill of vineyards. Their terroir driven wines with good price–value ratio have been quickly noticed by the quality oriented wine consumers. The portfolio consists of two main branches: a fresh, crispy line and a more concentrated line of wines with more potential to be aged – but both line with great quality and cleanness.

Gábor Ádám, manager of Sabar Wine House offers unique wine experiences, and his aim is to create wines of outstanding quality, to contribute to the local community, and to work on the great reputation of Badacsony wine region. His enthusiastic team supports him fully in achieving these goals, and they make wines with peculiar characteristics, accompanied with the values and the tradition of the place, the beauty of the surroundings, the attractions and charm of the region. Their objective is not only to sell as many bottles as possible, but also to attract visitors to the venue and to share this unique feeling, the sense of terroir with them.

It was not conscious at all. The concept of sabarism simply developed somehow and also the name came from you. After a long night spent on the wine terrace, a guest of ours texted us this word. We found it nice and funny, so we started using it in our everyday lives, and at this point, we may be able to finally define what it really means. 

We have been a small winery for ten years, with great plans and great wines. Many of you have been regular visitors to Sabar Hill almost from the beginning, and some of you even take our wines with you to ski. 🙂 More and more people like spending time here with a growing family and a growing circle of friends, and sometimes you celebrate important anniversaries with us. When you are here, it is like spending college years together. The most essential thing is being together, laugh and share experiences, just like back in school. This is what sabarism means to us. Relaxed and cheerful moments, days, tearful laughs, emotions, tranquility.

We know you, sabarists.

We don’t know your biographical information, but we know how good it feels to ease up here after a hard week. Or to just lay your eyes on the clouds for long minutes. To drink a few glasses of wine that flows into your body like the water of life. To talk with strangers for hours, then think of them as friends on the way home. And then to wait for another day to come when we can catch up right where we’d left off in the world of Sabar, a peaceful place without the evergoing competition of the outside world.  

Sabarism is a trend that brings human well-feeling, the joy of spending time together, laughing and relaxing without social glaze, back into fashion again.


Sabar Olaszrizling 2023

When you go hiking, listen to music, have a conversation, arrive home, if you are bored, if you get going, if you have just screwed it or if it is time to celebrate: it is Your Wine. Grapefruit, apple, lemon cane, a bit of cool tartness with honeyed aromas – but who cares? The music is on, you are there and your moment, your wine is in the glass, the bottle is nearby. Everything is fine.


Rhine Riesling Hercegföld 2023

For those, who love the feeling of biting into the flesh of fresh, sun ripened apricot. Adventurous aromatics of papaya, yellow rose after a summer rain. Yes, it was not an easy year, yet, you do not complain, you shine even more. Sabar Hercegföld. The name obliges.

Sabar Single Vineyard Olaszrizling Bács hegy 2021

Sometimes a glass of Olaszrizling can reflect a whole life. You can feel its colourful nature, the opportunities it had the courage to live with, the depth of its wisdom. Yellow flowers, vanilla, creamy texture, flambéed fruits. Its beauty and ripeness is not exaggerated like some cheesy stories. A hint of salted caramel with vibrant, refreshing citrus fruits. It leaves a deep impression.


Sabar Single Vineyard Olaszrizling Bács hegy 2022

The powder-like softness of almond flower fills up the space. It sneaks in with sweetish charm and vanilla aromas showing what happiness would look like in your glass if it had a body. This wine enchants your tasting buds with nice acidity and sun ripened yellow fruits, and at the same time with some fierceness and bitter almond ornaments. You will surrender to this wine.

Sabar Kékfrankos Rosé 2023

We love life, we like drinking wine and laugh loudly, play and fall in love. Is there anything to be ashamed of it? Bitter orange, a touch of dark chocolate, vanilla, orchid, sweet spices and blockbuster strawberry. This rosé will be your partner in crime whatever naughty thing you do. Don’t let it get bored…


Sabar Pinot Gris Csángó 2023

Standing out of the grey crowd. This is something we all long for. An appreciative glance, a kind word, an honest tap on the shoulder. This little “grey friend” (‘Pinot Gris’ is ‘Szürkebarát’ in Hungarian, literally ‘Grey Friend’) arrives smoothly at the first sip, well, it is about getting to know each other. Then its talkative body is enchanting you with citrus fruits, creamy caramel, pear and mineral notes. Its “fierce” look can stand the heat, and the acidity will not burn. You smoothly take off of the elegant gown of subtlety and pour another glass. This one is to cheer to you!

Sabar Cabernet Franc 2020

We saw our very own Sabar Cabernet Franc grow up and become adultIt was already promising as early as its “newborn” age, and by now this promise has become reality, in a firm and complex body. “Eye catching” overture, sweet barrel spices mixed up with pepper notes and the gentle fruitiness of blackcurrant. Plum seasoned with cinnamon with a touch of chocolate as a reward in the finish.


Sabar Cabernet Franc 2021

Open it in a cool evening, or open it any time. Don’t wait for the best moment, when you open this bottle, the moment will be just perfect. Deep ruby look, strawberry, pepper, a pinch of smoke and red plum. Cool, firm tannins, full body, spicy finish. This is Sabar hill. We have arrived home. 

Sabar ‘Kis Cuki’ Rajnai Rizling 2021

The enchantment of this “little cuteness” begins moderately but it quickly gets to the point. When the aromas start flowing from the glass, the palate is also overwhelmed with the charm of honey, peach and a touch of marmelade. Granola with sweet spices and a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste, before we are totally melted by the flattering fruits.


Sabar Kéknyelű 2022

What a first impression! It begins vehemently and its unmasked natural character makes you waiting for the second step. Probably this is not what you expected from this grape variety, but you just wait, let the wine play its fierce role this time. And you will realize how much you actually enjoy this unrestrained temper, because you “know the kind”. You know that it is worth waiting for the continuation. And you are right, as always. Suddenly the wine comes to a standstill and its merits are there for you to see in their full splendour. Grapefruit, salty walnut, rosemary and so many stories. Now it is your turn to tell your story to the wine.


Sabar 2683 Rhine Riesling 2022

We have 2683 reasons for opening this bottle right now. You may lay it in your cellar, wait for the “perfect moment”. But we say “later” too often in this life, even though there is no better occasion than this moment. Feel the joy and accept all that this Rhine Riesling can give to you. Peachy fruitiness with honey, a lovely, chubby body to cuddle, seductive, nice acidity. There is nothing more talkative than the silent seconds after the first sip.


Olaszrizling Birtokbor 2022 (Estate Wine)

Like a bookmark, this wine tells you in which chapter you are in the book of life. A clean mirror reflecting the playful, honest side of your personality. Sun ripened peach greets and you swallow the first gulps with pleasure. Lemon grass, chamomile flower and a tiny bit of honey. The naughtily fresh flavours remind you of your childish self, while its depth reveals who you have become. Every single bottle tells the story of another life.


Birtok Vörös (‘Estate Red’) 2022

Youthful and savage from the very first sip, like sweet sixteen when she knows she looks stunning in her little black dress. Cool palate abundant in black currant, blackberry and dark chocolate, spiced up to give great pleasure. For a good marriage, crazy moments are essential, aren’t they? Cabernet Franc and Kékfrankos, our first estate red. Keep the experience for years. And don’t forget, it is not a sin to be greedy with this wine.
