Harsanyi is in eastern Tokaj-Hegyalja
The Harsanyi winery is in the eastern part of the Tokaj-Hegyalja region, just under the beautiful trekking destination of Megyer Hill. The core of the vine territory was purchased by Jakab Rick, the great-great-grandfather of the current owner (Gábor Harsányi) in 1850, who was also the founder of the first pharmacy in Sárospatak. In 2012, Gabor took over the estate and expanded the size of the company by using modern technology and winemaking ethics. Even now, traditions and history form an essential part of the estate.
Organic viticulture at the winery
The vineyards are located in Kiralyhegy (oldest vineyard), Kutpatka, Cziroka, and Megyer. There are almost 9 hectares of vineyards planted with Furmint, Yellow Muscat, and Harslevelu. Each slope has its own soil structure that gives unique qualities and structure to the wines. A lot of emphasis is on organic viticulture, and no chemicals are used. Individual attention and care are given to each wine based on its requirements.
Unique, handcrafted wines
The most important thing in the winery is to combine tradition with modern ideas and technology. Controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Yellow Muscat is produced with reductive technology, while Furmints are aged using oxidation in oak barrels. Aszu wines are also bottled after two years of ageing. Almost 200 hectolitres of wine are produced annually. The company also makes wine jam, palinka, and stum honey. Visitors are welcome here for wine tasting and feeling the tradition and vibe of the gifted region.
