A Wine That
is reviving the century-old tradition of Furmint on the Steiner vineyard. Back in 1680, Steiner was classified as one of Hungary’s Premier Crus and became one of the most expensive vineyards in Europe. The Gneiss and glimmer schist found soils give the wines an immensely textural quality reminding us of high-level Vouvray with a pleasantly rich and intense flavour while keeping a great level of freshness.
Franz could literally be characterized as a crossover-artist. He is the sort of winemaker that is deeply rooted in his region, believing in the tradition of indigenous varieties like Blaufränkisch, while at the same time never shying away to experiment with new ideas and techniques that could lead him to exciting results.

Franz and his family stand out for their conviction to the recultivation of long-forgotten vineyard sites on the border to Austria in the Hungarian village of Balf, once the epicentre of the region's winemaking production. For him, the history of the area is beyond today’s political boundaries - he is a firm believer of the Pannonian cultural heritage and is eager to transmit this message in all of his bottlings, both those made in Austria and those in Hungary.
