Overlooking the wind-swept slopes of Király-hegy makes you immediately understand the energy that emanates from this place. An extraordinary piece of terroir with a unique microclimate, undoubtedly producing some of the finest wines of Tokaj.
10 hectares, cultivated organically on steep, terraced slopes with tuff and red clay soils, between 150 and 340 metres above sea level.
Barta is situated in the heart of the Tokaj region, the northeast of Hungary, at the latitude of 48 degrees north, similar to that of Brest or Orléans.
In 2003, Barta revived one of the most majestic and steepest vineyards in the Tokaj appellation, the Király-hegy, meaning ‘King’s Hill’ in English.
A tiny production (10,000 bottles a year) of mostly Furmint-based dry and sweet wines that wholly express the magic of Tokaj.
