’György Lőrincz is one of the few people who is loved by everyone because he is nice and kind. He has a harmonious life with wife Andrea, his four children and can create harmony even in his wines. The consumers and the profession appreciate his original, very fine and modern wines made in the style of Eger / having a nice acidity, transparent, non-jammy even if it is full-bodied, often mineral and intense/. ’

Born: Eger, 1991. 06. 22.
“Man rarely meets in wine world such an open-minded, thirst for knowledge, unselfish and committed youngster as Lőrincz György Jr. He already knows a lot, making good wines however his modesty and lowliness out of respect for the profession doesn’t let him to believe he has arrived. A lot of water will have flowed the bridge when the world will recognize this, but I know, I definitely know, time will come.
Kovács Pál – Debreceni Borozó Magazine 2015
We believe Eger is one of the most exciting wine regions of Hungary. We are grateful that we have the possibility to grow grapes here.
Producing red and white wines from the same area is a particularly challenging task. We would like to create terroir-specific character wines based on traditions and, at the same time, follow the requirements of today’s quality winemaking.
Old varieties, like Olaszrizling, Hárslevelű, Furmint, Kadarka and Kékfrankos take priority here. We seek to know more about our terroirs and parcels, to improve our cultivation and also to adjust the steps of our winemaking according to the different varieties.
….and put our heart and soul into understand the essence of our earthly mission.
