Gróf Degenfeld Wine Estate
Ungarn - Tokaj-Hegyalja
Descripción del viñedo
In 1994 the Count Degenfeld family successfully revived its wine estate in the Tokaji wine region following their over 150-year-old tradition.
Winemaking has always included the love of nature, respect for traditions and all this combined with the modern technology. We are producing dry wines and sweet wine specialties from the three main varieties of the region: Furmint, Hárslevelű and Muscat Blanc (Yellow Muscat). These wine specialties include sweet late harvest wines, Szamorodni and the famous Aszú wines. Two supplementary grape varieties, Kövérszőlő and Zéta provide additional opportunities to widen our style.
We are proud of the international recognition and awards our wines receive each year.
Our vineyards of 35 hectares are located in Mád and Tarcal and we own historical sites like Terézia and Zomborka.
Since 2009 our vineyards have been managed by certified organic cultivation.
In organic cultivation the goal is to reach a fine balance between the grapevine and its natural environment. This task requires a lot of attention and up-to-date professional knowledge. We work with self-produced organic fertilizers to nourish our vineyards. In order to prevent diseases, we reinforce the grapevine’s natural defenses and help beneficial animal and plant species to flourish.
Our wines with organic labels became available starting with the 2017 vintage.
