The restoration of a legendary 10-hectare terraced winery
In 2003 the most imposing and steepest area of the King’s Hill vineyard was carefully replanted and after three years of work this legendary 10-hectare terraced estate was successfully revived. During this restoration process, those who were involved successfully managed to preserve the terraces that had evolved over centuries. Along with this, the Barta winery owns another 17 hectares of land in the Kovago vineyards, 3.5 of which were brought back into production in 2017. The soils of the vineyard are stony – volcanic rhyolite tufa with some zeolite and small amounts of red clay. The number of vines varies from between 10 000 and 5 800 per hectare.
