" Come and experience the purity of the fruit, the great terroir, and the complexity of our wines, because, I believe, Tokaj has them all. For me it all started with my grandparents. Then, in 2005, I had the chance to take over the estate and I did not hesitate to do so. It's been a great journey. My motto is quality over quantity, no matter what. To meet these standards, I produce limited quantities to show the incredible terroir of Tokaj and want to get better and better every year. Please, join me through this adventure. " Laszlo Szilagyi owner and winemaker
