Endre Szászi has been growing grapes on Szent György hill in Badacsony wine region for over 15 years. He cultivates his vineyards organically and so does he make his wines. His estate is in a spectacular spot offering breathtaking view from the garden of his tiny tasting house and rustic guest houses. Thank God not only he grows grapes, but his estate as well – during the past years a restaurant with a huge terrace – certainly overlooking Balaton, the largest lake of Europe –, and a modern grape processing plant have been completed. This latter makes superb grape seed oil, grape juice, grape seed flour – all of them organic.
His wine shop is open every day from 10 to 16, and tomorrow Szászi Estate offers a special wine dinner tomorrow (25 March) with a 4 course meal based on local ingredients:
