Nothing is better than sipping the fresh must in the autumn sunshine. Even more wonderful is the feeling if we do that after a hard-working day in the vineyard. Harvesting our own vine with family and friends is really an abiding experience, specially if we celebrate it with a real hungarian village festive. Image selection is coming!

“Tavasszal az első ibolya a szenzáció, nyáron a cséplés és az aratás,ősszel a szüret, amit úgy megünnepelünk, mint a legnagyobb ünnepnapot…”

„The first viola is the real sensation of spring, the threshing and cropping are the best of the summer time, but we celebrate as the biggest feast-day the harvesting at autumn…”
