Our philosophy


Drink organic!

We firmly believe that we have a duty in our lives. As individuals we are created for specific tasks and roles.

We work hard to fulfill our mission and find happiness on the way. This does not mean that we are not facing difficulties and not get exhausted at times as winemakers. We do have disputes and dis-harmonies as all families do.

But we are happy and eager to do it better everyday. We like people, we like the nature, we like the uplands of Balaton and living within bounds.

We believe that dining is an important part of our culture. Consuming food is more than supplying the nutrients to our body. we avoid processed foods and attempt to eat what our family produces. 'You are what you eat!' If one consumes proper food his life will change for good. He will not desire superficial 'single serving' tastes, friends, relationships. Thus our philosophy applies not only to our wines, but our life itself.

The foundation of our business is our family. Our job is more than a hobby, it is our life. Running our winery is a full time job, our being serious about it needs to shine through all the details.

Winemakers

Dániel Dobosi


I built the cellar in 1988 and quit the co-operative the following year to pursue my dream. This was a very risky decision at that time, but I was certain that it is the way forward. My ancestors have been living in Szentantalfa since 1700 making a living as winegrowers and winemakers, this gave me the courage to 'leave the certain for the uncertain'. We started off with 1 acre which has grown since to 26. The family cultivates all the vineyards and we plan any development together.

Winery and Family. It all started in 1988 when Dániel, a young handsome man, instead asking me faint-hearted to date introduced me to the realms of wine-making. Ever since this is our common passion and goal. As our winery grew bigger and bigger every year making our dreams come true our family grew larger and larger with the blessing of God. During the next few harvests I gave birth to 5 children who literally grew up among the vine-stock, since the ripening of grapes have seldom respect to the status of young mothers. It came natural to us to work long hours six days a week since this is our life and these are our values. We hoped that our commitment to the winery will be inherited by our children but never forced it to happen. We let them leave, experience and return. Győző and Bálint were especially sensitive to this thus by now they are running the winery on a daily base.

Győző Dobosi


I grew up in the vineyard, learnt to ride a bike, cane collection and how to clean vine-stock. My first professional success came at the age of 12 at the Zánka Wine-week becoming the runner-up on the wine identification contest. I was an active participant on the wine festivals and trade-shows. After graduating from high-school I studied Oenology at Balatonfüred, but learnt most on the spot while working for the family winery. For us everything is about wine, I even met my future wife at a wine-fare. When we took our first baby from the hospital we directly went to a wine -fare at Balatonfüred to manage our staff, thus Bella saw the Tagore promenade earlier than her cradle. This is our passion. As the window person of our winery my responsibility is to organize wine tasting events and sales-marketing activities. My motto is 'if we do something do it 100%', a steam-engine does not move with a boiler at 95C, but at boiling temperature the steam can move mountains.

Bálint Dobosi


I am not a man of speech, ever since I am a small kid I spent my life in the vineyard riding my tractor. I graduated in 2002 as an Oenologist and Viticulturist, but I learnt most on this profession not in school, but on the field from my parents. As I grew older it became evident that my life will be all about our winery and vineyards. I am blessed that my work is my passion!
