KÁLI KÖVEK
We are making wines that are true representations of both the unique minerality of the Kál Valley and the varietal characteristics of the grapes that grow here.

In the beginning we didn’t have much, but we had an idea. We wanted to create a winery that evoked the spirit of the place and recognizably exhibited the attributes of these terroirs. In 2009, our idea started becoming reality. The first vintage tuned out to be excellent, which ensured and inspired us to keep going.

Our practices are based on humility and lots of handwork. We strive to achieve natural simplicity and high quality in our restless pursuit to do better. Our days are filled with the joy of learning and the excitement of a challenge.

“It’s the perfect experience, to become one with the thing we do.”Gyula Szabó, winemaker

TERROIR
The geologic history formed the Balaton Uplands into a magical landscape. Buttes risen from the ancient Pannonian Sea – the soil forming on top of these volcanic monuments along with the Mediterrenean subclimate made this land an inspirational place for many generations throughout history.
SOIL
The majority of our grapes come from the slopes of the naturally protected volcanic buttes. These vineyards grow on soils made of basalt fragments mixed with clay and brown earth. The structure created by volcanic tuff and sedimentary rocks create rich mineral and fossil content.
TRADITION
For two thousand years, life in the area has been centered around wine. Over centuries, the vineyards of the court, the church, the aristocracy and the nobility grew the prominence of the appellation – winemaking here was cultivated by figures such as kings the Árpád dynasty, the princes of the Esterházy family and the Archdiocese of Veszprém.
CLIMATE
Climate is strongly influenced by the terrain. In the growing season the southwest side of the basin enjoys Mediterranean influences. The amount of sunshine on average is over two thousand hours per year. Yearly precipitation is between 650-690 mm (25-27 in).
Wine tasting and Sales
We welcome our guests in our tasting room and quaint patio. Along with our wines we also offer specialty fares of local producers.
