A Family Concern
The Bock family has been growing vines and producing wine in the Villány wine region since 1850. A love of wine and the winemaking craft has been handed down from father to son over nine generations. At the beginning of his career József Bock harvested just over 0.5 hectares. Today he processes 145 hectares, producing 36 types of wine.
To this day the Bock Estate operates as a family concern. József Bock runs the company together with his children, and hopes that his grandchildren will join them. Their work has earnt them numerous awards, including the national award for the most beautiful Wine Estate in 2014.
Our wines are made from grapes grown on Villány’s prestigious slopes: Jammertál, Ördögárok, Fekete-hegy, Bocor, Csillagvölgy, and Kopár. We carry out eco-production over our land, meaning that we employ solutions that are gentle to the soil and plantlife. Painstakingly picked, the crop from our own 75 hectares and another 70 hectares of integrated land arrives each year at our processing plant, which is equipped with the latest technology and where 6-7,000 hectolitres are made annually.
