Pannonhalmi winery

„The most important thing is the warmth of the family.”
Mrs. Mária Babarczi, founder



Babarczi Vineyard and Winery is a family owned winery currently led by the second generation of the family. The estate is situated in one of the smallest wine regions of Hungary, Pannonhalma wine region in the vicinity of the city of Győr. The vineyards of the region are located at the edge of Kisalföld (’Small Plain’), on the slopes of Sokoró hills, which are considered the last foothills of Bakony mountains.



The Vineyard

The first steps leading towards founding the estate were made in 1980, when the first vines were planted in the garden of the family house in the town of Győrújbarát.

This garden was 3000 square metres and were planted with Ezerfürtű and Cserszegi Fűszeres. The following four decades were spent with smaller or bigger steps to increase the estate, and as a result now the Babarczi family cultivates 65 hectares.

Our vineyards lie mainly in the communes of Győrújbarát and Tényő, but besides we cultivate 5-5 hectares in Győrszemere and Pannonhalma, in the latter the plantations are in the famous ’Széldomb’ (’Windhill’) vineyard.

In 2009 we started an overall plantation renewing process, and as a consequence by now we own more than 40 hectares of newly planted, modern vineyard. The replacement of the vines is still going on in the following years to establish a firm base for the future development of the estate. The „backbone” of the winery consist of the grape varieties Rhine Riesling, Olaszrizling and Müller Thurgau, and these are supplemented by Irsai Olivér, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cserszegi Fűszeres.

We took a great step forward in 2002, when we introduced gentle vinification and reductive technology. This is the year when the new estate centre was established in Győrújbarát, near the city of Győr. According to the legend the main building of this estate centre was built of bricks from the castle of Győr, which was demolished by the Turkish troops. In the newly built estate building finally we have the opportunity to host visitors besides producing wines.

Our family has joined forces to achieve a goal, and we work hard to reach this goal: to establish a winery which will thrive for generations, a winery that is able to renew from time to time, develops dynamically and can reflect the unique characteristics of the region through the wines made here every year.

Chardonnay has a medium yield and ripens early. An extremely popular variety, its wine is consumed by many winelovers. Chardonnay is the favourite of many Hungarian winelovers as well thanks to its typical, lovely aromas. Usually it has higher alcohol content and acid level. The most characteristic notes on the nose and palate are green apple, pear, pinapple and peach. A refreshing wine with some mineral tones. Probably the only white variety which ages well in new oak barrel. Ideal match with fish dishes and white meat. Best served at 10–13 °C. Anyone fancy a glass right now?
