The Csendes Dűlő Wine Estate
Lying on the southern slopes of the Örsi hill, the Csendes Dűlő Wine Estate is owned by our family since 1971. With its unique panorama on three hectares grows the luscious ‘Olaszrizling’ (Welschriesling), the honey-scented ‘Hárslevelű’, the fiery ‘Szürkebarát’ (Pinot gris) as well as the “noble wine, or the nectar of nobles” the curio ‘Kéknyelű’ (Blaustengler), a special and characteristic Hungarian vine variety grown only in the Badacsony Wine Region.
At the very beginning there was only a mixed plantation next to the press house but gradually we acquired more and more land and revived the vines. Except for the land of the ‘hárslevelű’ where it is still the 40-year-old vines bearing fruit.
We are on a wine hill amongst venerable press houses in the thousand-year-old harmony of silence, peace, land, and man.
The wine terrace
It would be our pleasure to welcome you to our all-year-round open guest house, and picturesque summer wine terrace overlooking the vineyards and Lake Balaton.
We take the utmost care to process the grapes as gently as possible. Our wines are produced in stainless steel containers undergoing controlled fermentation process using wine yeast strains. Some amounts are aged partly in oak barrels. After bottling the wines are matured for six months and only then are they ready for sale. The ‘kéknyelű’ goes through extended bottle aging for at least a year.
