The Count Karolyi Private Cellars

is a family-owned winery founded in 1990. We have two of Hungary’s most modern wine cellars: one in the cooler Northern part of Hungary, a region famous for its white wines, and one in the warmer South, renowned for its red wines. We combine modern winemaking-techniques with centuries-old experience to achieve terroir-typical wines of world class. Thanks to an abundance of grape varieties native to France, Austria, and Hungary, we can offer a broad range of red, rosé, and white wines, of which many have won national and international awards at highly prestigious wine competitions.

Our Wines

We are driven by one simple inspiration: to produce wines of exceptional value to you. The Dunavar range embodies this inspiration. Therefore, it is no coincidence that our Dunavar wines have been among the top selling Hungarian wines for many years and win great prizes and awards at prestigious national and international wine competitions every year.

Our Winemaking

Hungary is among the world’s top 25 winemaking countries. The 22 wine regions within the country differ widely in size, location, and the character of their wines, but in each, you can find those types and traditions, which have determined the distinctive production techniques.

In order to guarantee the high quality which you expect from the Dunavár range, we monitor the vineyards carefully during the entire vegetation period from bud break to bloom and until harvest. We then harvest the grapes at a perfect state of maturity before they are processed quickly in a gentle way by using state-of-the-art technology to eliminate oxygen reaching the grapes and must. Finally, the wines are cold-fermented in stainless-steel tanks in order to preserve the full aromas…and this you can taste!
