The Mészáros family cultivates a vineyard of 80 hectares in Szekszárd, in the South Pannonian wine region, offering a beautiful selection of red wines from fresh and fruity to more complex medium to full body ones.

The winery is equipped with the latest technology. The wines are processed in steel tanks by a closed-system technology, in automated red wine fermenting tanks, with continuous laboratory control. The aging process takes place in barriques and casks. Wines are aged in the family’s 800 m2 cellar built in loess soil, at constant 14 °C / 57 °F temperature and optimal humidity. The original 250-year-old bricks cover the cellar walls. The cellar was renovated in 2002 and expanded by three cupolas. Besides being a spectacular structure, it is an ideal place for aging red wine.
