Ostoros

Winemaking is the past, present and future of the Ostoros family, it is part of their everyday life. They are maximalists at work. They are really proud of their home, Eger. They respect the terroir and the wine-making traditions of Eger. They are very happy to make the classic Eger wines: Királyleányka, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as the outstanding cuvée wines of the wine region, the Eger Bull Blood and its white counterpart, the Egri Csillag. Blending gives for the Ostoros family the opportunity to use the most advantageous properties of the base wines and to make light, fragrant, juicy wines.

Eger

Eger wine region is located in the north-east of Hungary, at the foot of the Bükk mountains. It is an area of unique possibilities, where the cultivation of both red and white grapes has been widespread. The climate of this wine region is rather cool, and it is duly represented in the wines’ character, namely in their exciting acidity, rich aromas, not overpoweringly present tannins and their elegance. None of these would be realized if Eger did not have a soil so fundamentally rich in character. It is complex and varied.

Here the lower layer rhyolite tuff of volcanic origin dominates, and is covered by hard, deep brown soil rich in clay. Moreover, composition of the soil in the slopes and vineyards is breathtakingly colourful and unique, where lime, slate, zeolite, marl and sandstone, or a combination of these can be found, giving the wine a strong character.
