Wine type: Red
About: Taking on the holistic approach – Maria and Alex make sure that all the work at the vineyard is done with respect and immense amount of care. At the core of their ethics are biodynamic principles and persistent manual labour. Low intervention winemaking is the top priority when it comes to the cellar. Fermentation always starts naturally, no temperature control is used. All of the wines are matured without sulphur and bottled without fining or filtration – as it was intended by nature. As Maria & Alex would say: “ We craft natural wine with joy, tickle, complexity, honesty and soul”.
Rét translates from Hungarian as grassland or field, since the land where these grapes grow used to be a pasture for feeding the livestock of the village. Slight black pepper spice complimented by dark red fruit notes.
