Heumann

The estate is located in the municipality of Siklós in the Hungarian wine-growing region Villány, It was founded in the late 1990s by the Swiss-German couple Evelyne and Erhard Heumann and gradually built up. The vineyards cover 15 hectares, which are planted with the red varieties Cabernet Franc, Kékfrankos ( Blaufränkisch ), Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and with the white varieties Rheinriesling, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer.

About 90% of the land has the premium status of the DHC (Districtus Hungaricus Controllatus) Villány. Among other things, the DHC regulations stipulate a planting density of at least 5,000 sticks per hectare, which is exceeded by up to 7,000 sticks / ha. The earnings is at the red wine varieties at 30 to 40 hl / ha and thus well below the requirements of the DHC of 60 hl / ha. Even with the white wine varieties, the yield is reduced accordingly.

The annual production amounts to annually 40,000 to 50,000 bottles, with the red wines make up the majority. Rosé and white wines complete the offer. The wines are part of unmixed (Cabernet Franc, Kékfrankos, Syrah) and partly as Cuvées (Lagona, Terra Tartaro) produced. The red wines are used in a maximum of four times barriques or double barriques made of Hungarian oak, the white wines and the rose in steel tanks expanded.
