THE FEHÉRVÁRI FAMILY
CREATING VALUE FOR GENERATIONS
“In our opinion, the world is curious about the other face of Somló that uses the terroir and the breed as a value, just like the knowledge which we have accumulated over the centuries. At the same time, it shows something new, fresh, a kind of charm, which makes the products of the Fehérvári Wine Estate understandable and lovable.”
The connection between the Fehérvári family and Somló dates back to 1545. Together with the family estate, the knowledge and experience accumulated during generations is passed down from father to son following tradition.
Just like the love, gratitude and responsibility we felt for Somló. This deep attachment is felt in our relationship to grapes, wine, and the people of the area.
In the 20th century, the male members of our family had the opportunity to gain a wider knowledge of the world and to introduce the related developments in Hungarian winemaking.
This innovative approach has resulted in unbroken, increasingly intensive development over three generations and we will do our utmost to ensure that it continues in the future.

Innovation without constraints
The whole of our work is permeated by the duality of tradition and innovation, and this special relationship, the handshake of past experiences and forward-looking ideas of the future, make our wines truly special and lovable.
The real strength and uniqueness of the Fehérvári Wine Estate lies in its small-scale operation and the freedom provided by knowledge and expertise. Thanks to the size and equipment of our winery, we are free to innovate bravely without compromise.
We are proud that we are not bound by large-scale industrial frameworks. This allows us to respond flexibly to newer and newer challenges, while maintaining and passing on the legacy of our predecessors. We are driven by constant development, humility towards the science of winemaking, and a curiosity that never wanes.
With our approach, we would also like to set a good example for the smaller producers and estates living around us. We believe that the diversity and creative innovation of this small wine region can be the key to its survival.
