"For The love for grapes and the tradition of winemaking."
We were introduced to this family vineyard by our staff member Zoltan, who you may have seen over the years helping out around the pub. He is often thought to be Tita's dad, although there is no family connection.
Zoltan went to school in Szekszard with Bodri Istvan, They have known each other for half a century. We were delighted to receive a VIP welcome to the vineyard, with a tour around the estate, lunch in the fantastic Optimus restaurant and a wine tasting with the man himself.
