You want to know that is true. you have to go and enjoy not only the beauty of the landscape, but also the finer-tasting wines.

Maybe Fata’s cellar doesn’t right away ring the bell, say much to wine fans, but if you have already tasted their wines, your opinion will be certainly different. As can be seen they offer 3in1!

Over the past 20 years, the Varga Cellar has the Hungarian wine professionally and technologically renewed fundamentally. The quality of the wines has become a Western European standard. Their philosophy … is not enough to produce just fine, balanced wines, you need wines that leave a mark on the consumer that you remember and you will rediscover from the thousands of items.

Badacsony golden cut Szürkebarát wine was awarded with the Gold Medal 2015.

The origin of “Csobánc Taste” originates from the Csobánc Hill. In 2013, they bought a nice estate with vines and fruit trees. These fruits were only processed for our own pleasure and deliberately avoiding preservatives, additives thickeners so in the jars, besides our love and energy, only fruit and vegetables are used. As was told by Katalin that closed into every bottle is the Csobánc mountain spring scents, flavors and colors of summer to the autumn levels. All their products are homemade … vegetable creams, sugar-free jams, lavender products … all that stimulus the eye and the mouth!
