About Wine
Béres was one of the few people to produce a 2014 estate Furmint from Tokaj for 2014. During Harvest heavy rains hit the region wreaking havoc on quality. Out of shear luck Béres's grapes were ready to harvest one week before the rains. The product is a spectacular fresh and inviting Furmint.

Furmint is a superior Hungarian white grape variety indigenous to Hungary’s Tokaj region. This particular cultivar has always been widespread; in fact, it has become the predominant grape in Tokaj with over 70% of all current plantings. Furmint grows vigorously, ripens late, and produces wines with powerful yet refined acidity. This varietal is also known for picking up the distinctive minerality of Tokaj’s soil, and beautifully expressing the terroir it has so perfectly adapted to over the centuries. Read More
