About Our Vineyards

The grape varietals that are used in the wines produced by KNW are proudly sourced from two Grand Superior terroirs and one Grand Cru terroir that KNW owns in the Eger wine region in Hungary.

Nyilasmar (20 acres) • GPS: 47.929657,20.499752 Blessed with a unique microclimate due to Lake Bogacs, this site has soils rich in minerals that result in distinctive, fresh, and fruit packed wines. This terroir is mainly comprised of granite and volcanic soils with south-southwesterly exposure. Varietals of the terroir include: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Kékfrankos.

Nagyfai (30 acres) • GPS: 47.938916,20.493228 Consists of gently sloping forest soils interspersed with volcanic rocks. This site produces well balanced and well-rounded wines and the varietals of this terroir include:  Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Kékfrankos, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Nagy-Eged (25 acres) • GPS: 47.926149,20.418516 Facing south-southwest, this steep-sloping site sits on a giant limestone rock and is covered by a thin top soil that is less than a meter thick. At this high stress site, we harvest our grapes from 350 to 550 meters above sea level, which when combined with the unique microclimate of this area, produces highly concentrated and mineral rich wines. Nagy-Eged is considered to be the best terroir in the Eger wine region and we are honored to have the only Grand Cru terroir located here. Varietals from this terroir include: Furmint, Kékfrankos, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Click here for even more information on Nagy Eged!
