Textured & Mineral

Gilvesy winery is situated near Szent György Mount (Mount Saint George), in the western part of the Balaton-Highlands. The area is shaped by 6 million years old volcanoes.

Furmint is the traditional grape of this area and just when we thought it couldn't get any better, Robert Gilvesy surprised us with his skin contact version. Due to this skin maceration, the resulting wine has more texture and complexity than its non-contact siblings, with its green spicy flavours and bracing acidity.

Furmint complements herb-crusted poultry or fish. Try it with delicate Asian dishes like sushi or dumplings.

About the Winery

Gilvesy Pincészet

Hungarian expat Róbert Gilvesy moved back to his homeland from Canada, and began building the Gilvesy winemaking empire on the former Esterházy estate on Szent György Hill. Thanks to years of hard work, the Hegymagas-based facility now includes a modern building complex and about 13 hectares of vineyards, in addition to being the home of the family. The area is shaped by 6 million years old volcanoes, where indigenous and international varieties grow organically.

Robert’s absolute admiration for nature and the terroir translates into an immense respect for the environment. By farming using organic practices, the soils and the vines stay healthy. In the winery, by letting nature take its course without controlling the processes, and using local resources, such as Hungarian oak barrels, Gilvesy promotes and protects the Balaton region.
