Ipacs Szabó Nászút Helyett ”Instead of Honeymoon”


To the joy of Ipacs family, he used the money put aside for the honeymoon to buy his vineyard. He ‘had to’, it was love at first sight, the world expands for me here and everything just fits into these barely two hectares. This little estate has been the constantly renewing symbol of togetherness, challenge, and happiness for the couple.

It is clear that cabernet franc has found its home in Villány, and is the key to its future. According to the Villány appellation control system, “Villányi Franc” appellation is a carefully selected 100% cabernet franc – the flagship brand of the wine region. Villányi Franc is the embodiment of elegance, style and harmony. Not overwhelming, but uplifting.

Let it time to open, taste it from a large glass.
