Insider Tips from The Rosé King

The Dúzsis Family from Szekzárd in the sunny south of Hungary cultivate their Danube-Swabian heritage and a long family tradition in winegrowing. Father Tamás Duszi, who was awarded the national title "Winemaker of the Year" in 2014, is actually considered the Rosé King of Hungary and produces only ten different rosés, seven of them of pure varietal. In the past 20 years, however, he has also made a name as a creator of great red wines, first and foremost the Cuvee Görögszó, which won the Vinalies Internationales 2015 as the best red wine of the entire competition. The typical varietal in Szekzárd is, of course, the Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch / Lemberger), which the Dúzsis have developed to perfection in several variants.

With the three sons, Tomi, Bence and Vince, in the footsteps of their father the Dúzsi vineyard has now expanded to around 60 hectares and is increasingly dominating the international markets with terroir-shaped wines, which are vinified with modern cellar technology. The most important export country is already the USA. In New York alone the powerful wines from the south of Hungary are now represented in 15 wine shops and restaurants – largely as a  result of the "Dúzsi World Tour 2016", in which Tomi, the polyglot, ensured that consumers on the other side of the Great Pond now know what treasures Hungary has to offer. The young man has been studying in Geisenheim and he earned a masters degree while in Montpellier and Lisbon. For a few months now, Dúzsi junior has been a member of the Portuguese-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and father Tamás is owner of the Hungarian Order of Merit for his life's work.

Anyone who wants to see and taste how tradition and modernity can continue to go hand in hand has this opportunity during ProWein at stand L61 in Hall 15 and during a guided tasting on March 20 at 10 am at the VINUM- Stand 13C39. The varitey of Dúzsis’ wines ranges from the Hungarian classics Kékfrankos, Kadarka and the famous "bull blood" to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. Not to mention the unique series of different rosés. Bottom line - a real insider tip.
