Kovacs Nimrod Winery
The essence of fine wine is rooted in the unique terroir, where the grapes are raised, with wines from the three of the top terroirs in the Eger wine growing region.
Since Eger is a cool climate region, similar to Burgundy or cooler climates of California, we planted varieties that feel very much at home, and are capable of producing world class wines. In addition to these international varietals which include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, they also feature traditional Hungarian varietals, such as Furmint and Kékfrankos.
Grapes are framed using sustainable practices and every year they hand harvest healthy and happy grapes which are being gently guided into fine wines.
Kovacs Nimrod Winery is situated in seven continuous cellars on the historic Verőszala street in the town of Eger. Back in the 18th century, there were hundreds and hundreds of wine press houses in Eger, which were erected above their respective cellars to handle onsite processing of the grapes. After the grape juice fermented, the wines were stored in barrels in the cool cellars below. Guided by this tradition, we continue to make wine in a similar way, but aided by 21st century technology.
