Description to Etyek-Buda

The wine-growing area in Hungary is located about 30 kilometres northeast of Lake Balaton (Balaton) and just as far west of Budapest. The vineyards cover about 2,000 hectares. The climate is characterized by abundant sunshine and little precipitation. Towards the end of the 19th century, József Törley, who had learned his trade in Champagne, became aware of the area, which is ideal for growing Chardonnay due to the loess, chalk and black earth soil and climate. He founded a large sparkling wine industry here. Other grape varieties are Olasz Rizling(Welschriesling), Rajnairizling(Riesling), Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Blanc, as well as the new varieties Táltos, Zefír, Zengö and Zenit. Well-known producers are Etyeki Kúria, György-Villa, Haraszthy Vallejo, Nyakas and Törley Sparkling Winery.
