Winemaking philosophy

We make wines in a style that we would lie to drink: modern, pure and light but with plenty of concentration. We practise organic farming, using no chemicals, minimal intervention in natural processes and seek to maintain biodiversity. We don’t impose anything on our wines but strive to retain the fruity aromas while also letting the terroir shine through. We are exploring the potential of Furmint, Hárslevelű and Muscat.

We use steel tanks and traditional Zemplén and Stockinger oak barrels in the winemaking process and are also experimenting with amphora.

We produce 8-10,000 bottles of wine a year, with limited series produced only in outstanding vintages.

Our portfolio includes everything from Furmint sparkling wine to single vineyard Furmint and Harslevelű wines, as well as Muscat and sweet Szamorodni. We also produce Aszú in exceptional vintages.

SPARKLING

habzo
SANZON HABZÓ

the characterful sparkling wine

Our first wine that became sparkling “by accident” in 2014, an iconically awful vintage. Since then, it hasn’t wanted to be anything other than sparkling. It has character, yet is not overbearing, with all the power of Furmint: lean with steely acidity and a creamy mousse.

DRY SELECTION

SANZON CLASSIC

A Furmint that you don’t need to think about too much, it just feels good to drink. Delicious fruit and judicious oak use shape its character. Complex on both the nose and the palate, it boasts bright acidity and an enticing mineral finish. It takes its name from the Erdőbénye coopers and the typical Zemplén oak barrels of the area in which it was fermented and matured.

SANZON FLEUR

One of Tokaj’s characteristic varieties, this is Muscat in an atypical but elegant and tight form. Benefitting from maceration on the skins and maturation in clay vessel, it boasts a restrainedly elegant nose as well as a serious structure framed by crystalline, pure acidity. For true lovers of rarity.

RÁNY VINEYARD SELECTION

SANZON RÁNY FURMINT

For connoisseurs, the product of a unique and special terroir: hard, volcanic rhyolitic soil. You have to struggle for it, but it’s a beautiful challenge.  Firm acidity, cool elegance, minerality and a complex structure with a long finish and serious ageing potential.

It needs time to open for you to enjoy its layers.

SANZON RÁNY HÁRSLEVELŰ

Also made with fruit from the Rány vineyard, but with a much more seductive note thanks to the sweetness of the Hárslevelű: plenty of fruit in a full-bodied, hedonistic wine. Serious structure with long ageing potential.

SWEET SELECTION

SANZON SZAMORODNI

Youthful, firm nose with aromas of peach, pear and yellow fruit. Concentrated, dense and long on the palate, framed by intense acidity. Long ageing potential!
