"Humility, love and craftsmanship are that give the QUALITY of the wine!"
Our cellar is located in one of the most beautiful Swabian villages of Central Europe, in Császártöltés, Főkáptalan Pincesor, which has 600 cellars.
The cellar rows of the village are special in their own way, as they are organically integrated into the village, forming a street and becoming part of the village.
The largest is the Főkáptalani cellars, but it is also worth mentioning the Káposztáskert cellars, the Kis-sori cellars, the Vidám sori cellars and the former Erzsébet utca cellars.
According to folk tradition, the settlement is associated to Lipót I., who settled peasants to fill the Őrjegi marsh stretching from Akasztó towards Baja. After that, in the years 1743-1744, the then Archbishop of Kalocsa sent German families to the area, from whom he expected the viticulture to be boosted.

The Hajós-Baja Wine Region is situated on the left bank of the Danube between the River Danube and the Tisza.
In 1998, its 2,066-hectare area was separated from a part of the Great Plains wine region.
The Hajós-Baja wine region, which consists of 12 settlements, offers the possibility of producing many high-quality wines thanks to its sub-Mediterranean climate and its brown, loess and humus soil properties.
On a national scale, the Hajós-Baja wine region has the highest monthly and annual amounts of sunshine in the country.
