Vinum Veress család

Vinum Veress Wine Cellar

The cellar is on the Csáford hillside, near the city of Zalaszentgrót, in the centre of the Zala wine area, with its unique vinicultural values.

The site, which is part of the Balaton Wine Area Region, offers a wide selection of wines particularly rich in acids and strongly scented. The climate here is cooler and rainier than the national average, with a high humidity level throughout the year and deep strate clay loess soil. The chestnut trees, embracing the vineyards on the southern and western sides of the hills are a clear sign of mediterranean influence.

Wine culture dates back to generations in our family.

CSÁFORD

Csáford is a small village surrounded by hills in the valley of river Zala, in the Carpatian pelvis – the heart of Europe. The beauty and quiet of this untamed area capture all visistors from around the world. The land is perfectly suitable for viniculture, given its geographical and climatic characteristics.
The history of the village, based upon archeological remains dates back to the Copper Age. The most famous of these are the Csáford gold discs. The two discs – 10 and 12 cm in diameter – were made of thin gold plate, decorated with hammered knobs and geometric patterns. They were worn on the middle of the chest sewn to the overgarment. The discs were characteristic jewels of the people populating Transdanubia during Middle Copper Age (4000–3500 BC). The exquisite artefacts came to light near Csáford, on the slope of the ridge rising above River Zala, during vine-stock planting, in 1952. Rescue archaeological investigations brought to light remains of a Copper Age settlement with typical ceramic fragments. The original gold discs can be admired in the Hungarian National Museum, Budapest. The Göcsej-Museum, Zalaegerszeg exhibits finds from local Copper Age sites.

In this village, whose number of inhabitants is constantly dicreasing, you can find a bell tower built int he 18th Century, along with a monument dedicated to the heroes of the First and Second World Wars reminding us of those fallen. The old school has been turned into a church and a village fair is held on the Sunday following the saint Kármelhegyi Boldogasszony.

The name „Csáford” so estranged to the Hungarian language dates back to the following legend. When Hungarian king Endre II. returned back from the crusades with his army, he was accompanied by a British knight named Stafford, who had not only won himself acclamation in the fights, but was also a mighty drinking mate. The faithful soldier was given the property of Csáford in recognition for his acts in the battles.
