Balaton North - Food, wine, lake
TOUR STARTS ON REQUEST | The Balatonfüred – Csopak region is one of the outstanding wine-districts of Hungary, where wine-growing and wine-making has a history of more than two thousand years. Viticulture in this part of the country possibly started before the Roman Conquest and was certainly highly advanced during the tenure of the Romans here. The climate is particularly advantageous for wine growing. Lake Balaton, the biggest sweet water lake in Europe ensures very favourable climate for vine growing. The Balatonfüred district gained more importance when it became the property of the Tihany Benedictine Abbey, and by the middle of 19-th century Balatonfüred became the capital of the Lake Balaton where distinguished people met one another at balls and feasts and enjoyed the excellent white wines here. The vine growing area is around 3000 hectares of mostly white grapes. Come and visit the region with us and learn about the local grapes!

The estate was established 20 years ago it is one of the best known of the region, making mostly white wines.
