The Vesztergombi family looks back on a centuries-old tradition of winemaking in the region around Szekszárd in southern Hungary, where the River Danube meanders between rolling hills and fertile valleys. This scenic setting provides the perfect conditions for growing red grapes with character. The Vesztergombi winery was re-established in 1991, resurrecting the long-held family tradition, and founder Ferenc Vesztergombi was awarded the prestigious “Winemaker of the Year” title in Hungary in 1993. Today, with three generations working together, the winery continues to produce award-winning red wines that authentically reflect the unique terroir of the Szekszárd region.
Today’s processing plant was built in 2004, but for them, the concepts of modern and traditional winemaking go hand in hand. That is why, during the harvest, the collect the grapes manually, before pressing them, but supervise the processes with modern technology.
