Our winery was founded by the savior of Hungarian viticulture, the famous viticulturist, Zsigmond Teleki in 1881, whose name got famous in Europe during the phylloxera epidemic. While most of the wine makers were busy saving their harvest from blackflies, Zsigmond Teleki chose the different way and invented new grape varieties, disease resistant even to the phylloxera. His spiritual heritage has been determining our estate regarding both our future objectives and everyday practices. The winery has gone through many changes since then, and nowadays it is a massive production plant with its own vineyards- 400 hectares and its own brand, called Teleki.
The Villányi Wine Region
The wines of the Villány Wine Region are considered to be both of excellent quality and of commercial success by experts and consumers. Even the first full origin protection system of Hungary was developed out here. While the nature around is truly beautiful, the wine remains the best attraction of the whole region. Villány has a unique microclimate. It rivals that of Bordeaux. The Villány Mountains protect the plantations from strong winds, and mild temperatures provide excellent conditions for the rich in loess soil. Taking into account all of these details, most of the vineyards produce red grapes.
