St Andrea

The Winery

Eger is becoming an exciting place for wine. Due to the efforts of a new generation of oenologists including Dr György Lőrincz, Hungary’s wine-maker of the year in 2009. His St Andrea winery, in the northern city of Eger PDO, is among the leaders in re-establishing important Hungarian varietals such as the white Furmint and Hárslevelü and the peppery, red Kadarka. He has won many awards in Hungary and in Bordeaux with his wines and became a wine icon in Hungary. St Andrea is inspired and motivated by life with the mission to create wines that are unique. A winery that strives to do good.
