Our goal is to maintain world heritage values in the highest quality.
Our family winery farms in Mád, Tokaj-Hegyalja, and we only process raw materials from our own Mádi plantations. Our areas are located in the vineyards of the Úrágya, Király, and the Kakas. Of the eight hectares we cultivate, three are entirely traditional manual, i.e. goat-growing. It is important for us to present the local conditions – soils, varieties and viticulture – therefore all our efforts are aimed at harvesting characteristic and perfect raw materials from the vineyards of Mád.
In winemaking, we follow a similar philosophy: we process grapes in the most gentle way possible and ferment them into wine in a natural way. During the organic development of the estate, in 2003 we got to the point where our first serious batch – 900 bottles -, Úrágya Furmint, was put on the market. From our average of 12,000 bottles of wine a year, individual batches still play an important role today. Since the establishment of the Circle of Mád in 2006, we have been actively participating in the research work aimed at presenting the production sites of Mád.
The estate center already stood in the 1750s, when it was first mentioned, it was owned by the Pulszky family. During the continuous expansion, the Barna family, who lived in the house until 1905-1985, also operated a cooper workshop in it. Beneath the stone building was a huge cellar system, much of which still belongs to it, and became operational after the renovations: after many decades, it is operating again as a wine cellar. In the spirit of connecting the residential, catering and economic functions, we established the vineyard on the site of the former cooper’s workshop. The tasting place is located in the adjacent building, which is also included in the 1867 Tokaj-Hegyalja Album. The winery also got its entrance back from the main street of Mád, Rákóczi Street: as the last element of the renovation, the shop of the Tokaji Borbarátnők Társasága (Tokaj Wine Friends Association) was located in the former business premises. Apartments for 17 guests have been set up in the three buildings, in addition to the premises related to the winery.
