Bojt Egri Bikaver


This wine is the truest representation of the legendary Egri Bikavér. Cool climate, volcanic soils give rise to the fresh, spicy, ripe yet vibrant fruits with a
touch of leafiness from firm but well integrated, round tannins.

Gergo Bojt is a revolutionary young producer in the northern Hungarian wine region, Eger. A town full of history and rich culture in winemaking. His four legged companion, Buddy, always follows him around the vineyard. They form a great team with a sense of playfulness showing through the wines, too.

The 1552 Siege of Eger became an emblem of Hungarian heroism when the castle was
successfully defended against the united forces of the two greatest Ottoman troops. When
accounted for the defeat of their 20-fold army, the Ottoman leaders claimed the Hungarians –
including women – fought with such an unparalleled courage they must have had drank the bull’s
blood. This gave the name to the region’s emblematic red blend, Egri Bikavér (bull’s blood of Eger).
Therefore every bottle is embossed with “1552 Eger”.
