Why the World is Eager for Eger.
A New Generation of Winemakers.
Just northeast of Budapest, in the foothills of the Bükk Mountains, lies one of Hungary’s most historic and captivating wine regions. Winemaking began here, nearly a millennia ago, when French monks moved to Eger with their viticultural skills in tow to help establish the Catholic bishopry.
Lucky for them – and even luckier for us – they found the terrain of Eger to be similar to the Burgundy wine region and transformed the beautiful countryside into fruitful vineyards. To this day, these lands remain focused on viticulture, and the cool and continental climate of Eger is perfectly suited for growing both red and white grape varietals.
Volcanic soil. Explosive flavors.
Nimród Wines are mainly produced from two volcanic sites in the Eger region with a select few coming from Nagy-Eged Hill, Hungary’s limestone-rich Grand Cru and highest vineyard in the country. It is in these breathtaking hills that we pay homage to ancient history while cultivating terroir-driven, world-class wines for the modern-day wine drinker.
