Description to Villány-Siklós

The wine-growing region is located in the south of Hungary close to the border with Croatia and is named after the town of the same name (until 1999 the area was called Villány-Siklós). The vineyards cover about 2,300 hectares of vines. Under a continental climate with Mediterranean influences with long, hot summers and cold winters, the vines grow on predominantly limestone and dolomite soils with loess and loam overlays, which are also characterised by iron-rich red clay components. Around the town of Villány, the main red wine varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch), Kék Portugizi (Blauer Portugieser), Merlot, Kadarka, Kékburgundi (Pinot Noir) and Zweigelt.

Villány - Weinberge

A special feature is a climatically particularly favoured mountain saddle in the Villány Mountains, where powerful, long-lived red wines are pressed under favourable conditions. Around the town of Siklós, mainly white wines are produced from Chardonnay, Hárslevelű (engl. Lindenblättriger), Olasz Rizling (Welschriesling) and Tramini (Traminer). There is a very high number of winegrowers who produce according to the rules of organic viticulture. Well-known producers are Bock József, Csányi Pincészet, Gere Attila, Gere Tamás, Heumann, Hummel Horst, Jammertal (brands Cassiopeia, Koh-I-Noor, Wunderlich), Malatinszky Kúria, Tiffán Imre, Tiffán Ede, Polgár Zoltán, Sauska, Vylyan and Wassmann.
