SZEREMLEY

The Szeremley Winery is one of the wineries that contributes the most to the fame of the Hungarian wine by combining centuries of tradition and modernity, placing the vineyard on the world map of the vineyards. The family winery of Huba Szeremley produces its special, as Hungarika famous wines on an area of ​​115 hectares. Only here are the varieties Zeus and Kéknyelü with female flowers, which have been considered celebrities of the Badacsony region for several centuries, and the male dust pair Budai Zöld and the Szemelt Rizling (Riesling Riesling), a blend of Welschriesling and Riesling.

The unique character of the wines results from the volcanic basalt and the microclimate determined by Lake Balaton. The sunlight here ripens the grapevine in three ways: not only "from above" but also "from below", as the back of the leaves bathes in the light thrown back by the lake's water level; The black basalt gives off the warmth of the sun during the night and gives the wines a typical Vulcan Badacsony character.

Due to the high minerality and the beautiful acids even the driest wines in Badacsony have a special extract sweetness, softness and roundness and have a unique maturing potential. International successes: Challenge International (Bordeaux), Vinitaly (Verona), Riesling du monde (Strasbourg), Vinalies (Paris), Mondial (Brussels), Grand Prix (Weinsalon Hamburg), IWSC (London).

Badacsony

The Badacsony wine-growing area stretches along the north shore of Lake Balaton in the vicinity of the Badacsony mountain, which is of volcanic origin. The emerging basaltic lava deposited on the earth's surface at that time, namely the sediment of the Pannonian Sea, thus protecting it from the destructive power of the following millions of years and formed the outstanding out of the plane magnificent basalt cones, which are called witness mountains. These slopes are considered since Roman times, more precisely since the reign of Emperor Probus, as vineyards of excellent quality; from the 3rd century. The Vinea Pannoniae Nobilis Districtus is one of the oldest denominations of origin in Europe. In the Middle Ages, most of the vineyards came into the possession of the church. The Badacsonyer wormwood acquired in the 18.-19. Century. a reputation comparable to the Tokaj.

The wines of the Badacsony are typically full-bodied, fiery and tasty. Traditional winemaking and aging in barrels are characteristic of the area. Due to the proximity of Lake Balaton, the southern plains also enjoy the light reflected from the water surface, creating a reasonably favorable microclimate.

The Welschriesling makes the largest contribution in terms of quantity; in good vintages it can mature longer on the vine and be sold as a "szemelt rizling" (Riesling Riesling). On larger areas are still the grape varieties Szürkebarat, Traminer, Muscat Ottonel, Riesling and Chardonnay to find. The Kéknyelű, a wine once typical of the region, has declined sharply in the 1980s due to frost damage, but is now experiencing a renaissance and will soon become a figurehead among the Badacsony wines.
