Gál Vineyard in Szigetcsép
25 kms from Budapest lies the Gál Vineyard and Wine cellars. The vineyard is 95 hectares and is located in the hills of Szigetcsép, Szigetmárton and Szigetújfalu on the Csepel Island. The island has mostly belonged to the royal families and its viticulture is also proven by grape-tax documents from 1569.
60 hectares of the vineyard were recently planted in the last few years. The most significant types of grapes are: Rajnai rizling, Olaszrizling, Szürkebarát, Cserszegi fűszeres, Kékfrankos and Pinot noir.
In the family-own wine cellars it can be stored up to 1000 hectolitres in temperate, rust-proof containers. The current vinery-technology depends on several things such as optimal reductive fermentation or handmade-harvest.
