Wassmann Cabernet Franc

This biodynamic wine is of the elegant grape Cabernet Franc, which gets so good in the wine region Villány in south Hungary that the special grape clone has received a protected origin called "Villány Franc". The couple Ralf and Susann Wassmann moved from Germany to follow their passion and start this small 2 hectare vineyard. Cabernet Franc is their top wine.

Curiosa

tokaj

The Wassmann couple have no employees and do all the work in the vineyards, in the cellar and marketing by themselves to achieve the best quality. Their cellars are traditional, built in clay by the danubian Swabians more than 100 years ago. There is no concrete, no technique there, the soil in the cellars is pure, natural clay ground.
