Three century-long tradition
Dobosi winery is a family business that was established in the early 1700s, currently cultivates 26.5 hectares of vines in Balatonfüred–Csopak wine region in Szentantalfa, located in the picturesque Nivegy Valley, which is 5 kilometres away from Lake Balaton, between Zánka and Nagyvázsony A nearly three century long grape growing tradition has been passed down from father to son at our winery. Given that Balaton Uplands viticulture has a great tradition in the industry, we thought we would apply tried and tested methods of old to our cultivation technique to produce a genuine organic wine. In addition to bottled wines our winery also produces and sells wine in bulk, 100% organic fruit juices and grape seed products (powder and oil).
Natural methods, organic products
The focus is on cultivation with natural methods. The most important principles are the development of a harmonic state, the use of modern forecasting methods, prevention and biological protection. The organic production mode prohibits the use of any fertilizers, growth regulators and propagating materials. In addition, we can produce our wines with private labels – upon request of companies and individuals alike. Our business objective is to familiarize our customers with our products and our company’s commitment to organic products and their quality, values that span over several generations.

Bio Olaszrizling 2017
Bright yellow colour with green reflections. Mild almond notes typical of the variety. Restrained citrus tones in the finish. Pleasant acidity in harmony with the wine – a charming fresh, crispy Olaszrizling from Balaton Uplands wine region.
Bio Háromszög Olaszrizling (Bio ‘Triangle’ Olaszrizling) 2016
For this wine we harvested fully ripened fruit. After fermentation the wine was divided into two parts, one part was aged in stainless steel tank, while the other was aged on fine lees in second use 500 L barrels. It has a light greenish yellow colour. Medium intense, matured character on the nose with apples and pears. Full bodied wine with silky texture. Refined wine with zesty acidity, good balance and some oaky tones. Lovely, long finish. It gets more gracious with every sip, and shows more and more of its charming character.
Bio Juhfark 2017
Light colour with pale yellow shades. Medium intensity on the nose with mineral notes, reminiscent of stone fruit. After some areation subtle aromas of tropical fruits appear. When swirling the glass, the wine moves around with momentum. Refreshing, clear palate with a complexitiy you would not expect from such a young wine. It has a good potential, refined acidity keeps it firmly.
Bio Kéknyelű 2016
Wines made of Kéknyelű grape usually have greenish colour even after years, but for this wine the grape was left longer on the vines, thus the resulting wine has a concentrated, oily, yellow texture. Blossoming trees and other white flowers on the nose with some figs. Wonderful acidity dominates the palate with notes of birch. Beautiful, long finish. It needs some areation so that the wine could fully show aromas typical of the terroir.
Bio Dobosi Cuvée 2015 and 2016
Ligth, easy drinking red wine from Balaton Uplands with sour cherry and plum jam on the nose, blackcurrant and blackberry on the palate. (It has a distinct ’cigánymeggy’ character, which is a Hungarian type of picante, savoury sour cherry.)
