A family, a winery, an estate and lots of gastronomic experiences from beach food, through panoramic restaurants to modern bistro cuisine. In Laposa Winery they are proud to show all the flavours and values of the Balaton Uplands through their wines.
The story of Laposa Winery started in 1978 in the Balaton Uplands – exactly on a train where the founders met. Not long after, in the same year, the marriage took place in the Hableány building, which is the headquarters of the Laposa Estate today. Thus, the barrel maker Laposa family from Budapest and the winemaker Barabás family from Badacsony merged. They received a small wine-press house in the Balaton Uplands as a wedding present, which started to expand from the beginning of the ’90s.
The family mainly cultivates traditional grape varieties, which are situated in the best-suited sites of the surrounding volcanic buttes. Their four gastronomic units were built around their wines, where besides tastings they welcome the guests all year round with exciting flavours and interesting programmes.
In Hableány, which is situated in the centre of Badacsony, wines are made at your fingertips. You can even get into the life of the winery during lunch or dinner, since you can see the tank room from the restaurant but if you really want to experience the process of winemaking, you can also sign up for a guided winery tour. They strive for sustainable development that is in harmony with the rhythm of nature.
Laposa winery produces mainly white wines. They work with traditional, local grape varieties typical of the Badacsony wine region. Laposa produces about 500,000 bottles a year, the main varieties are Welschriesling, Rhine Riesling, Pinot Gris, Kéknyelű, Furmint and Juhfark. They have long-aged, barrelled, vineyard selections, but they also make fresh, reductive wines. You will find the right accompaniment for every occasion, and can also purchase Laposa’s wines from their webshop.
The basic selection (Fresh, Fragrant and Rosé) consists of more fruity and light wines, whilst their premium wines put more emphasis on the minerality of the terroir, which is associated with elegance every time.
