Rolling hills. Unique characters. Silky wines. An immense variety of soil. Almost each vineyard has a unique soil whose character can be recognised in the wines. In Eger we can produce truly beautiful, full-bodied white wines and the most elegant red wines alike. Our winery has always strived for reflecting these qualities and the terroir to a maximal extent in the wines. We therefore prioritise small slope-selection batches.

We first started planting on the Síkhegy and Pajados slopes. Blaufränkisch, Cadarca, Viognier, Pinot noir and Syrah. This is where the story of the Gál Tibor wines, made from our own vine, starts. We have continued expanding these areas mostly, but have also acquired vineyards which are older than 50 years.

Vine variety: Pinot noir, Pinot gris (Szürkebarát), Gewürztraminer (Tramini), Leányka, Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon

Wines created here are deep and intense, and extremely elegant at the same time: these are the grand cru wines of Eger.


15.11 hectares
Soil: Eroded rhyolitic tuff
Vine varieties: Blaufränkisch, Syrah, Pinot noir, Cadarca, Viognier, Sauvignon blanc, Pinot blanc
Exposure: South, southeast, southwest

Wines from the Pajados slope are full of mineral characteristics, immense richness and spices. The Gál Tibor Winery’s premier cru wines come from here.


4.08 hectares
Soil: clayey loam, brown forest soil
Vine variety: Blaufränkisch
Exposure: Northeast, southeast

Tornyos is part of Síkhegy, but winemakers consider it a separate geographical unit. Whenever a vintage lends itself to make a limited series of Blaufränkisch, that wine usually comes from this area. We have chosen this spot for the estate centre.

The diverse soil
Our unique soil varieties make it possible to produce genuine, natural and characteristic wines. Nature’s imprint cannot be mistaken. As vine roots penetrate three to four metres deep into the soil, the style and taste of the wine will bear the characteristics of both the upper soil layer as well as the underlying rock. The higher the clay content in the soil, the fuller the wine and the more concentrated the taste. Our chief objective is to learn about the terroir: we constantly strive to achieve wines, which bear crystal clear imprints of their origin.

The wine region
“The strength of the Eger wine region lies in its diversity. The diversity of the vine varieties and cultivation areas lends itself to the production of outstanding cuvées, while the diversity of the landscape, the cities, villages and spas offer a variety of experiences.” Tibor Gál
