The Dorogi brothers are close friends with the Budo’s of Bott Winery. Judit introduced us one night and we tasted an exceptional line up of their expressive, traditionally styled wines from the 8 hectares of mixed vineyards that they farm. These vineyards referring to locally famous names like Elöhegy, Lönyai, Thurzó, Mézes Ma’, grace the labels of their dry and off-dry wines. The sweet Aszú and Eszencia wine are blends of these sites.
The wines are fermented only with native yeast typically in old 220 liter Gonci, (glass for the Eszencia) at cellar cool temperatures; fermentation is slow, sometimes taking years for the sweetest.
