Söptei Winery and Wine Cellar – History and Technology
The Söptei Winery and Wine Cellar is the most patinated family winery in the Balatonfüred-Csopak Historic Wine Region, with a winemaking tradition going back more than 170 years. The winery, which nowadays farms 7 hectares, is run by Zsolt Söptei, the fifth generation of the family. The unique production technology ensures the uniqueness of their wines with high nutritional value. Made from grapes harvested at full biological ripeness, the reductive wines are characterised by a much longer drinking period than usual. Söptei wines stand the test of time well, and their enjoyment value is only enhanced by years in the bottle. Year after year, the winery brings to our table such varied wines as the “Mood” dry amber cuvée, which won the gold medal at the world’s most prestigious and longest-running wine-grading event, the Challenge International du Vin in Bordeaux in 20201, the ’18 “Magic” Italian Riesling, also gold medal-winning in 2020, the ’15 “Hangulat”, also gold medal-winning in 2017, or the ’15 “Harmony” pinot blanc-chardonnay-grey blend, which also won a silver medal at the same event. Cheers!
