The Vylyan estate is located in the Villány Wine Region, the most famous Hungarian red wine producing area. This land has the highest sunshine duration in the country. The east-west orientation of the Mecsek mountain range protects it from cool northern winds. The loess and clay topsoil on the limestone bedrock is absolutely ideal for viniculture. The wines made here unmistakably bear the typical Villány characteristics.
In addition to special characteristics of the terroir, the most important factor is still the Vylyan staff. The commitment, knowledge and hard work of this team makes the wines unmistakably Vylyan.
The estate was founded in 1992 by Pál Debreczeni. We have started planting the vineyards also in this year. We currently manage 120 hectares of land. Our vineyards face south or south-east at a density of 7,000 vines/hectare, in order to make sure that rich grapes can be harvested. We typically only process our own grapes, which plays a key role in ensuring that we are responsible for the quality of our wines, from the very beginning. Fine wines require excellent grapes.
The centre of our estate has been established on Fekete-hegy in the village of Kisharsány, at the heart of our vineyards, reflecting our bond to the vineyards. We await wine-loving guests with our own kitchen and restaurant, a Mediterranean-style terrace, and plenty of cultural and gastronomy events and programmes.
Our vineyards feature both autochthonous and international varieties. Such varieties include Riesling, Olaszrizling, Chardonnay, Csókaszőlő, Portugieser, Zweigelt, Pinot Noir, Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah.
Our winemaking focuses on the character of the grapes and the vintage, there are no unchanged “recipes”.
