The volcanic regions of Pannonia
These spectacular ancient volcanic mesas have lent their slopes to the revival and renewal of a mystical terroir, both noble and revered. Embraced by lake Balaton to the south, it offers its distinguishing varietal wines in a most divine setting.
The beautiful Balaton Highlands speaks to the senses. The epicenter of this region is the Káli Basin, with a micro-Mediterranean climate and seductive volcanic hills dotted with charming villages and cellars of old.
These terroirs with a thin layer of earth and great potential for wine are being revived by brave young winemakers. The region vibrates with youthful explorations.
Muzsla renews history with it’s fine wines from a volcanic substrate. With Hungarian roots, but located on the Garam river in Slovakia, Muzsla represents the revival of a great but forgotten viniculture.
Out of a flat plane, a great volcanic stump rises. Like the basalt lava of the Badacsony hills, but standing apart, Somló is a „micro” appellation creating wines of distinct volcanic character and historical lore.
