Discover A Volcano’s Legacy: Gilvesy
*Organic, Sustainable, Vegan-Friendly, Volcanic*


We have said it before, and we will say it again: at Gilvesy, wines are all about the expression of Lake Balaton’s unique landscape. ⁠

Hungarian expat Róbert Gilvesy moved back to his homeland from Canada, and began building the Gilvesy winemaking empire on the former Esterházy estate on Szent György Hill. Thanks to years of hard work, the Hegymagas-based facility now includes a modern building complex and about 13 hectares of vineyards, in addition to being the home of the family. The area is shaped by 6 million years old volcanoes, where indigenous and international varieties grow organically.

Robert’s absolute admiration for nature and the terroir translates into an immense respect for the environment. By farming using organic practices, the soils and the vines stay healthy. In the winery, by letting nature take its course without controlling the processes, and using local resources, such as Hungarian oak barrels, Gilvesy promotes and protects the Balaton region.



Robert’s Rizling (Riesling), Sauvignon Blanc, Olaszrizling, and Furmint (including a sparkling Furmint) all carry a consistent expression of volcanic energy. ⁠

Bracing acidity, rock-crushing sea spray, an inexplicable purity of fruit, tender mouthfeel, all came together into a symphony of gastronomic joy. ⁠



A comparison of different vineyards, varietal blends, and winemaking techniques proved how little we know, and how much more there is to learn about this captivating wine region. ⁠

Today we are excited to offer you a selection of ten unique Hungarian treasures, seven of which are special bottles that are only available once a year.
