Our goal is to maintain world heritage values in the highest quality.
Our family winery is located in Mád, Tokaj-Hegyalja, and we exclusively work with our own three vineyards: Úrágya, Király, and the Kakas of Mád. Of the eight hectares we cultivate in registered organic farming, three are fully traditional hand labor bush-vines. 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 grapes.
In winemaking we follow the same philosophy: we work gently, traditionally and naturally. During the organic development of the estate, in 2003 we got to the point where our first – 900 bottles -, Úrágya Furmint, was put on the international market. Organic farming experiences date back to 2004, in 2010 we turned fully, and the registration folowed. From our average of 12,000 bottles of wine a year, exclusive batches still play an important role today. Since the establishment of the Mádi Kör Association in 2006, we have been actively participating in the research work aimed at presenting the vineyards of Mád. With the Technical Earth Science Faculty of University of Miskolc we are active in the research of the vulcanism forming the region and its effect on the plantations since 2015.
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 Ladies in Wine Association) which was build for business purpose several centuries ago. Apartments for guests have been set up in the three buildings, in addition to the premises related to the winery.
