The wine-growing region lies in the north-west of Hungary, about 50 kilometres north of Lake Balaton (Plattensee). In the past, mainly oxidative wines were produced here, which rivalled the Tokaj. The climate is characterised by warm, temperate summers with plenty of sunshine and frequent winds. The vineyards cover around 700 hectares of partly clayey soil on the slopes of an extinct volcanic cone. Here, mainly high-alcohol, high-acid white wines with ageing potential are produced. The most important varieties are Chardonnay, Furmint, Hárslevelű, Juhfark, Olaszrizling (Welschriesling), Rajnairizling (Riesling) and Tramini (Gewürztraminer). Well-known producers are Fekete Béla, Györgykovács Imre, Kreinbacher and Tornai.
