Gyöngyössolymos, situated at the southern foot of the Mátra mountains, has a long tradition of vine-growing. There are several hundred hectares of vineyards surrounding the village. This is where our 7-hectar vineyard and winery is situated.
Wine-making has been present as an occupation in our family through several generations, for some members as a way of making a living, for others ”only” as a hobby. We are determined to constantly learn new skills, and are striving to produce wine grapes and wines of the highest quality, making the best use of the local conditions.
The climatic conditions of the wine-region suit the requirements of vine-growing well. The Mátra mountains help reduce the climatic extremes of the area, the average amount of rainfall covers the water demand of the grape vine. The volcanic medium-hard loam soil is optimally cultivable, and it has a good nutritional capacity.
In the course of planting our vineyards, we aimed to choose the varieties that are best suited to the characteristics of the wine region. We grow Chardonnay, Királyleányka, Irsai Olivér, Szürkebarát (Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, Pinot Beurot, Grauburgunder), Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch, Limberger) and Blauburger, all of which yield excellent wines. We regularly enter wine competitions, where our wines usually get good reception.
We would like to call special attention to our light white wines with a slight mineral flavour and high acid content made of Királyleányka grapes, and our velvety red wine made of Blauburger grapes.
There are many places of interest in and around our village, including the St. Nicholas church, the statue of St. John of Nepomuk, the “Pincés” watermill, and earthworks from the age of the Árpád dynasty.
Among natural formations we have to mention the Dripping Well, or the geyser cone called “Bába” Stone, which has inspired several folk tales.
