The winner of the 17th edition announced
Let us introduce Zoltán Heimann
If you hear him speaking, you might think he is an opera singer or at least an actor. Capturing voice and polished way of speech. Zoltán Heimann is undoubtedly one of the most educated and sophisticated wine people with a passion for art. Certainly it would not qualify him among the best ones, but Heimann Family Estate has become a leading estate of our country with wines like the icon Barbár. Zoltán Heimann places extreme emphasis on local grapes like Kékfrankos – Alte Reben Kékfrankos is a great example –, and he made immense efforts to put Kadarka grape back to the wine map of Hungary. He regularly organized conferences, workshops and planted an experimental vineyard to select the best clones of Kadarka. At the same time, he is open to the varieties of the world, he introduced Viognier and Sangrantino in Szekszárd wine region – this latter one contributes to the blend of Franciscus.
