Robert, whose family is originally from Hungary, was born in Canada and grew up on a farm. After some years working as an architect, he found his passion in winemaking, and relocated to his grandparent's country to start a winery.

This is what Sauvignon Blanc from the volcanic soils of Szent György Hill can do when fermented in steel tanks and aged on fine lees. It is a perfect and classic cool climate example of Sauvignon Blanc with very gentle notes of fresh grass and green peppers, accompanied by savoury herbed aromas. The palate is bright and crisp with ripe citrus - lemon and lime.

Pair this Sauvignon Blanc with light salads and fish dishes.

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.
