Centred around a baroque-style chateau, the Szent Gaál winery encompasses 23 hectares of prime vineyards across three parcels, each with its unique character. Traditional red grape varieties are cultivated in areas most suited to their temperament, benefiting from the combination of soil types and subtle differences in micro-climate present throughout the Szekszárd wine region.
