TAUBER & WASILEWSKI​

The Polgar family vinery is located on the gentle slopes rising nearby the suburbs of the Villany town. They are the legend of Hungarian winemaking. The long friendship of Zoltan and his wife Katalin with the Polish Tauber-Wasilewski family who have lived in both countries for years and their passion for wine resulted in a joint investment and new wine under the Tauber-Wasilewski brand. The Villány region is known for producing the most noble and traditional wines in Central Europe. In this sunny south of Hungary, just off the Croatian border, a small range of hills suddenly springs up. They have been planted with numerous grape vines since the 18th century, creating the wine region most known in this part of Europe. Around the small town of Villány, consisting of white, story houses, charming squares, small restaurants and cellars dug below them, there are 2,200 hectares of vineyards still using the Roman, but above all German and Serbian traditions. The most common vines here are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, but also the characteristic Kekfrankos, Kekporto or Portugieser. The unique combination of mild climate, appropriately pitched mountain slopes, alkaline soil and hundreds of years of Hungarian winemakers effort created great wines of Central Europe.
