Hétszőlő

Importer: Les Caves

The Tokaj Hétszőlő estate, known for its unique wines and rich history, is situated in the heart of Tokaj-Hegyalja, on the southern slopes of Mount Tokaj
The Hétszőlő and Nagyszőlő vineyards have been classified as premier growing areas since 1772. Sitting on volcanic rock blanketed with a thick layer of loess, the vineyards cover 55 hectares of the south-facing hillside. The confluence of the Tisza and Bodrog rivers creates an especially favourable climate for the development of Botrytis cinerea, which induces the highly-prized “noble rot”.
We use organic methods to preserve our soil and care for our vineyards. The majority of vines are the Furmint variety (73%), with lesser amounts of Hárslevelű (18%), Kövérszőlő (5%) and Muscat (2%).
