Permanent activities

Company
team building

Interpersonal relations and teamwork among employees are instrumental to every company’s success. To our guests who wish to not only have fun but also improve while doing so, we set out to provide an opportunity which allows them to learn and relax at the same time: since summer 2016, we organize and conduct team building events as well. Our showroom and the newly built room above the wine cellar are both suitable for smaller conferences. To set a pleasant mood, various team building games are prepared by our colleagues. Our guests have the option to ride on a horse and carriage, take part in wine tasting, and cook in a traditional cauldron on the winery’s porch, surrounded by the vineyard and the tall pines of the area. Those who would prefer to unwind have the perfect opportunity in the Finnish sauna built beside the wine terrace.

About us

Bogáromi János and his wife bought the out of service grape processing plant on the outskirts of Kötcse in spring 2010.

The Akasztó-based owner’s history with the wine region is a long-standing one, as he has been purchasing grape from the area for his other business since 1997, and most of his experiences as a hunter are from the nearby forests as well. In the summer of 2010, old acquaintances made him aware that the grape processing plant and cellar in Kötcse were now for sale, and with the support of his wife and children he promptly bought it. Following significant financial investment and modern mechanization, the winery entered the domestic market during the end of 2011 with bottled wines, all of which are bottled on location using state of the art tri-block bottle filling machines.

Our cellar, with its constantly improving looks, consists of a bottling room, an attractive wine tasting room, and the cellar itself, where our wines are aged in stainless steel tanks prior to the bottling process.

Above the winery, under the cool of the pines there is a wine terrace able to serve up to 200 people, which offers quality wines and various activities for guests looking for entertainment and recreation. Those wishing to relax may refresh their body and mind in our newly built wooden house which features a Finnish sauna.

The winery’s aim is to establish a tourist attraction in Kötcse which ensures extensive leisure opportunities for visitors of all ages throughout their time spent here. Our increasingly popular wine tasting is available for up to 50 guests in the winery’s showroom. Apart from wine tastings, we also offer services for friend/family getaways, smaller weddings, bachelor parties, bachelorette parties and the like.

A constantly expanding list of activities are awaiting our guests on any day of the year!

The winery’s wines are available all year round throughout the country, at festivals and other events as well. We wish to introduce our wines to as many people as possible, since each sip contains our respect for the trade, our passion for the region, and also our immense hospitality.

Our motto:
“Who visits us today will be our guest tomorrow.”

Our wines

The winery currently owns around 111 acres of vineyard. It has the capacity to process a considerably larger amount of grape, and for this reason we regularly purchase additional grape from growers in the area. Most of our grapevines are Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling, Muscat Ottonel, Chardonnay, Merlot, Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. Our repertoire mainly features white wines, but our rosé and red wines are also achieving excellent positions in the country’s various wine competitions.

Németh Gyula head winemaker takes great care to ensure the quality of our reductive wines. The head winemaker of Fáncsi Hegyi Wine Cellar is originally from the Great Hungarian Plain. Winegrowing being a family tradition, the viticulturist studies in Budafok was a clear decision. With his 30 years of relevant experience and immense enthusiasm, he has been our head winemaker since 2010. As a true expert, he pays close attention to the life of the wines he makes, and often hosts wine tastings at the winery, where with a glass of fine wine he’ll gladly showcase his repertoire of jokes as well.

Wine tasting

Wine tastings are always hosted by one of our wine specialists. Guests attending are greeted with pálinka and a special type of pastry fresh from the masonry oven: kenyérlángos. Then, our wine specialist’s tour introduces guests to the history of Fáncsi Hegyi Wine Cellar and the processes involved in winemaking and bottling.
