The Figula Winery has been managing its winery in one of the oldest Hungarian historic wine regions of Balatonfelvidék (the upper regions of Balaton) since 1993. The work of many long years resulted in an enlarged estate and an improved winery that is managed on a territory of 30 hectares in the regions of Balatonfüred, Balatonszőlős and Pécsely.
Mihály Figula† was awarded with the honourable title “Winemaker of the Year 2000” as acknowledgement of his work.Bővebben
Sáfránkert, Száka, Lőcze, Gella: old names, which origins are unknown. The typical slopes of this wine region are formed from time to time based on tradition, experience and observation. There is not a single slope which is familiar to the other. Different soil structure, microclimate, water supply discribes these areas, which makes the wines diverse. Take a little time to get to know these slopes!Bővebben
“The grape is a wonderful plant. It is able to survive hard times, giving relief, faith, joy, comfort, hilarity, – and “pardon me” – nice bemusement to the exhausted vine-grower. However, besides respecting traditions, new ambitions, better technology and oenophiles – so-called “wine-lovers” are needed to provide some subsistence. Yes, we need friends of wine who feel and understand the work, the compositions, since good wines are finely orchestrated work of art. Good wines are silent and sound clear just like a gregorian chant fondling the cryptic silence of the cellars.”
Mihály Figula (1952 – 2008)
