In 2011, I had one of my first experiences with low intervention wines. It struck me right away. In 2012 I visited RAW FAIR London for the first time, which was a revelation and a shock. Several international natural wine fairs, tours and tastings followed. In 2018 I had a dream of making my own wines. In February of 2019 I started pruning my vines (previously rented out to grower practicing organic viticulture), and made my very first vintage. After bottling 2020, I decided to set up a winery. In late 2020 I found out that a substantial proportion of my ancestors were winegrowers in Óbuda (Alt-Ofen). The name of the winery was given: their family name. Gittinger Pince (Winery) was formed.
Gittinger Pince a tiny scale winery near Lake Balaton (Szent György-hegy, Hungary) with sole focus on terroir and respect to nature.
We produce rosé, PetNat and red wine from Pinot Noir (planted in 2001, always been farmed organically), in 2022 we planted (#notillplantation) 0.5 ha of Kéknyelű (white autochton variety only in our wine region), we produce several different batches of sparkling PetNat ciders from organic apple varieties. In the cellar: nothing is added, nothing is taken away. We ferment and / or age in amphoras and produce our wines with lots of love and care.
We make all our wines and ciders without any intervention. Nothing is added, nothing is taken away.
We focus on terroir and respect nature.
