Kékfrankos is the wine variety of Sopron. Here it has its origin. Over the past years this variety got a lot of international reputation, whereas in Hungary it is still an underdog. For a long time, this grape was misunderstood and treated the wrong way. Nobody took care of it until my father made the first quality Kékfrankos of Hungary in 1997. Balf is a small village on the lake Neusiedl. Many thermal springs are situated here. Some are used as therapeutic baths, whilst the water from others is bottled as mineral water. Our Kékfrankos is a wine made with a deep understanding of the region and the place.
