Kadarka, which is originated in Anatolia, was brought to Hungary by Balkan nations who were fleeing from the Turks, and over time, it became a traditional Hungarian grape.
Döbrögec Winery in Akasztó, owned by Akker Pince Kft., did not accidentally pinned it on their flag: it is one of the most exciting kinds in the region and it is an excellent accompanist of the famous fisherman’s soup and fish paprikash of Akasztó. There is, of course, further selection in the winery: they produce wines from nine varieties of grapes harvested on almost 30 hectares. Visitors are welcomed at Döbrogec with a 100-seat venue, horse tourism accommodation and if they are interested, they have an opportunity to take part in the wine work itself as well.
It is especially worth visiting the winery on Mary’s Day Farewell in early September. As Sándor Petőfi writes in his poem called „The Wine Drinker”, beside a relaxing wine it is easy to escape our lives.
