Lagona in Falstaff
The prestigious Falstaff Wine & Gourmet magazine rated our 2013 Lagona 92 points with the following tasting note:
Semi-bitter chocolate, fresh black cherry, almost like a black walnut gateau. Dense, mellow tannins, chubby, round, and still very closed in the palate structure, ripe acid, good fruit potential, integrated alcohol. Good structure, takes some time.

Vinum - Wine of the Month July 2015
Carsten Henn, Vinum editor has recommended our Kékfrankos Reserve 2012 as his wine of the month July. This is his tasting note:
What a wonderful fresh, black-violet Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch) Reserve, made by the Swiss family Heumann inVillány, the southernmost wine region of Hungary. Somewine specialists callthisarea the Bordeaux of the East. Inspiring pure notes of sweet cherry and licorice plus a great, medium-grained tannin structure, which integrates the fruit sweetness.This combined with a fresh acidity gives the wine length and enormous succulence.The wine ends with noble tartness. It is rustic in the finest way - a nobleman made farmer. Still needs time in the bottle, another two years, but has everything for a long life. Aged in 500-literbarrels.
Recommended by Carsten Henn, Vinum Editor Germany
VinCe Magazin July 2015
Pale, greenish yellow colour. Intense, floral, citrus and vigorous Riesling with thrilling fragrance. Lemony acidity, steely texture and varietal character. Long aftertaste.
