As well as the more general characteristics relating to the Balaton, the Tihany Peninsula has a unique microclimate and production area. The moderating, tempering and sun-reflecting effect of the water of the Balaton and the peninsula’s inner lake creates the ideal environment for making red wine. The nature of the peninsula also differentiates its vineyard area from that of the vineyard area stretching along the shore of the Balaton. Nyereg Hill, Csúcs Hill and Apáti Hill surround the red wine vineyards around the inner lakeon 77 hectares only. The Tihany range is a seven million-year-old volcano, whose soils were formed on tufa bedrock, which is extremely rich in minerals, thus providing structure and ageability in red wines. Its vineyard area consists of sites classified as 1st and 2nd class in the vineyard cadastre of Tihany. Thanks to rainfall during the vegetation period and the water retention capability of the Tihany topsoil, there is enough water for the grapes even on warm summer days.The Tihany range is a seven million-yearold volcano, whose soils were formed on tufa bedrock, which is extremely rich in minerals, thus providing structure and ageability in red wines.
