Back in the day Balatonudvari used to have more weeds and shrubbery growing on its hills than grapevines, but that didn’t deter acclaimed sociologist Árpád Skrabski and psychologist Mária Kopp from renovating a dilapidated cellar here in the 1970s.

About 40 years later, in 2007, their daughter, documentarist Fruzsina Skrabski and her husband Dávid Mészáros decided to follow in the footsteps of her parents, and started growing grapes, mainly the white varieties characteristic of the Balaton Uplands region. Their craft wines are available at the cellar – whether you want to purchase a few bottles or only sample their best items, you should definitely make an appointment in advance.

The Skrabski family also owns nearby Tulipán Guesthouse, which is set in an eternally peaceful environment.

Tip: The only thing you’ll have to pay attention to on your way here is not to miss the intersection of main road 71 between Balatonudvari and Balatonakali that will take you to the winery.
