The ideal climate and soil conditions provide good conditions for the production of grapes and wine in this wine region, which has a rich tradition since the Middle Ages and used to produce mainly kadarka. The XVIII. century German settlement also promoted the development of wine culture here. The wine was matured in cellars carved into loess in the typical cellar streets, folk baroque style cellar villages. The expertise of German winemakers in blue aprons has greatly contributed to the good reputation of the wine region. Following the phylloxera outbreak, the area of ​​vineyards increased significantly, and the range of cultivated red and blue grape varieties also expanded. After the second grape reconstruction, varieties with good quality wine were planted on a large area with significant state support. Prominent representatives of German architecture in Hungary are the typical press houses that make up the cellar village, which - coupled with the Hungarian hospitality - make this wine region very attractive for wine lovers.
