„István Ipacs Szabó graduated from the Szent István University as an Agricultural Engineer specialized in Economy, Viticulture and Oenology. During his college years in Gyöngyös, he was not only working in Hungary but gained practical experience in Slovenian, Italian and German wineries and research institutions. After the state examination he did his internship in California and became winemaker for Vylyan in 1999. He started his own winery in Villány in 2009 where he is doing his best to grow grapes in Kövesföld parcel on Tenkes hill.
“It was love at first sight. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the little cellar and the rows of vines. I could also see as far as the Papuk Mountain in Croatia, which is about 50 kilometres from here but they are visible in nice weather. I feel I am somehow between heaven and earth here.”
It is a small winery and intends to remain one; there are no plans to exceed the 2-hectare size. First, only one variety, Cabernet Franc was planted because István thinks this is the one having a good time in Villány. He would like to dig deep and learn about its thousand faces. Meanwhile, however, he has discovered a new love, Blaufränkisch which is an exciting variety and produces beautiful wines in Villány.
