Continuing the tradition

In 1983, Gyula Várhelyi and Margit Juhász bought a dilapidated building in the centre of Tokaj, Hungary with a secret plan to open a winery. This building, according to the descriptions was once a hunting lodge built by King János Szapolyai over 500 years ago. Today, Kata and Péter Várhelyi, their children, continue the tradition and the dream of family viticulture in the same place, making high quality and rich Tokaji wine personal to Hungarian history and heritage.

Winemaking in love for nature

These vineyards cover 3 hectares and varieties of Furmint, Sárgamuskotály, Zéta, and Kövérszőlő are cultivated without the aid of insectides at all. Keeping in mind their love for nature, the earth and their craft, strong chemicals have not been used for years and the protection and care of the vines require a lot of manual participation and meticulous detail.

The selection of white and dessert wines of the winery is made from the ripest lot of grapes and are harvested late to allow for maturation and depth

Experience the famous Tokaj from Hímesudvar winery

The famous Tokaj region itself is blessed with microclimate, minerals and loess soil, giving the historic Tokaji wine its taste and nobility. Known to have been a favourite of Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Voltaire, Gœthe and Schubert, Tokaji wines take a special place among European wines, for even Louis XIV of France proclaimed Tokaj the ‘wine of the kings and the king of wines.’ Building on the foundations of Tokaj’s cultural and traditional significance, at Hímesudvar, the Várhelyis, without mystifying the philosophy of their wines, strive for excellence, purity and precision of their products, which you will certainly find to be of sublime quality and richness –– indeed, these are wines like no other.
