Gróf Buttler

The winery

The Gróf Buttler Winery cultivate vines on 36 hectares on the Eger wine region. The philosophy of the winery is based on the historical traditions of the wine region, the greatness and opportunities of the area, the uniqueness of the handmade winemaking and the potential of the varieties fitted to the soil.


Two terroir – two character

The grapes of Gróf Buttler Winery  comes from two vineyards which has very different and special character. The Szarkás vineyard based on riolit tuffeau that can provide excellent ripeness for the grape.  The minerality is a leading character and gives complexity to the wines. Minerality, elegance, frutiness.
Nagy-Eged hill, a special territory regarding its location and its soil composition, is a true Grand Cru terroir. The plantations extend up to 501 metres above sea level, making them the highest vine plantations in Hungary.  
The unique taste of the wines due to the special exposition, the soil which ideal for the vines and the microclimate the can provide perfect ripeness. Its complete southern exposure, the 20-30% gradient of the slopes, the particularly gritty, limestone-based soil as well as the continuous air flow all contribute to the development of a special microclimate. One of the uniqeiness of the Nagy-Eged is the calcareous soil, that comes from died unicellular organisms from Eocene and Triassic ages. The died unicellular organisms transformed to calcareous soil, that can provide lively but round, elegant, integrated acids to the Nagy-Eged wines. This  calcareous subsoil and the darker top soul provides the perfect conditions for excellent ripness.
