Wine Region

The local inhabitants treat as labor of love the real pearl of the region  the Sopron wine and Sopron Wine Region.
The Sopron Wine Region is one of Hungary's oldest wine region proud of historical traditions. For inhabitants of Sopron grape meant for centuries their livelihood. The economic base of the city were the grape and wine privileges.

The Sopron Wine Region is located in the western corner of the country in the foothills of the Alps, on west and south coast of the Lake Fertő, as well as in the Sopron Mountains. The most valuable area includes about 1,500 acres of  production areas of the mountain slopes around Lake Fertõ. The sub-Mediterranean climate of Lake Fertő formed out a real “miracle world” in this area. The grape maturation is not assisted by the reflection on the lake, but the warm air trapped in the daytime over the lake that is blown in the night toward the vineyards. The center of the wine region is Sopron, it includes also Fertőrákos, Kópháza, Balf, Fertőboz, Harka, and Fertőszentmiklós and since 13th June 2000 the Kőszeg region, which has enlarged the production area with altogether 259 hectares of vineyards.
Besides the Blue Frankish there are significant Zweigelt, Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot noir vineyards. Among the varieties of white wine the Green Veltliner  is most typical, but Chardonnay, Traminer, Zenit and Sauvignon blanc are also prevalent in the region, but the share of the trendiest type, Irsai Olivér is still growing. The Sopron wine made from Early Red Veltliner is a real rarity. Another interesting feature of the wine region is that the local climate favors the production of late harvest dessert wines. These wines are not new in our region, their presence can be traced back to 1524, but today also some excellent sweet white wines can be tasted in several wineries.

The Company Bormarketing Műhely Nonprofit Kft. established in 2001 make efforts towards the further cultivation of the natural quality of Sopron wine, excellent wine and cultural values of wine culture. Preserves the Sopron wine region, as an outstanding historic landscape of Hungary and the World Heritage List and made it known to the wider world.

We collected wine producers from the wine region to become familiar with their work and their wines in one place. In case of reservation a personal wine tasting may become possible:
·         Fényes Pincészet
·         Iváncsics Pince
·         Lővér Pince
·         Vincellér
·         Taschner Bor- és Pezsgőház
