Teleki

The Hungarian wine merchant and vine breeder Zsigmond Teleki (1854-1910) inherited around five yokes of vineyards from his father. He travelled all over Europe as a young man and founded a wine export business in 1881. Motivated by the peak of the phylloxera plague throughout Europe towards the end of the century and government subsidies for combating it, he founded a private nursery in Villány for the breeding of rootstocks. He recognised early on the importance of the right selection depending on variety and soil type. He was advised by his Austrian friend Franz Kober (1864-1943). In cooperation with him, he developed the famous rootstock Kober 5 BB, which is still used today.
