Balassa Winery, Tokaj - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

The boutique Balassa winery was established in 2005 by Istvan Balassa in the historic Tokaj wine region. Right from the beginning, Istvan, a perfectionist, was determined to produce only the highest-quality wines possible by maximising the potential of each vintage. It all starts in his vineyards with growing grapes of outstanding quality by applying a rigorous scientific approach to cultivation. He then creates each wine using artisanal wine-making methods, allowing the unique characteristics of the grape, the vineyard and the terroir to shine through in every drop.
