Mihály Figula, one of the very best wine-makers of Hungary will introduce his wines along with his remarks and stories in words, our chéf's exquisite menu in taste, and János Figula's live music in sound.
The Figula Family Winery started business in 1993 in the Balaton-region also known as the gem of the Pannon area. In this particular region being rich in unique natural resources, dealing with viticulture and winemaking is a delightful task and a serious responsibility.
It is also our duty to preserve the more than 2000 year-old traditions.
Buying wine is a question of confidence. We are devoted to win customers’ confidence by performing all the procedures with expertise and professionalism, starting f from vine growing to sales activities. Besides respecting traditions, we aim to produce high quality enjoyable wines using the latest technical elements and technology .
“Da bibere – Give something to drink”, is written on roman jars found nearby in the countryside referring to the ancient roots of this wonderful trade.
Wine – just as bread – has been in cultic connection with mankind for thousands of years.
The words “szőlő” (meaning “grape”) and “bor” (meaning “wine”) are also hidden in the names of several settlements in the Pannon area just as Szőlősgyörök, Borszörcsök, or Balatonszőlős.
It is the felicitous encounter of the natural resources, the land and the viticulturer that makes our vineyards so beautiful, no matter from where you are watching the landscape of Lake Balaton .
“The grape is a wonderful plant. It is able to survive hard times, relief, faith, joy, comfort, hilarity, – and “pardon me” – giving nice bemusement to the exhausted vine-grower. However, besides respecting traditions, new ambitions, better technology and oenophiles – so-called “wine-lovers” are needed to provide some subsistence.
Yes, we need friends of wine who feel and understand the work, the compositions, since good wines are finely orchestrated work of art. Good wines are silent and sound clear just like a Gregorian chant fondling the cryptic silence of the cellars.”
