Majoros Estate

From Hercules to Bacchus

Just as on Mount Olympus, family power struggles determined the fate of Majoros offspring. Young László Majoros, the estate’s current chief winemaker, did not want to have anything to do with grapes even though he was born into a dynasty of famous vintners. In spite of paternal pressure, he focused on competitive sports and bodybuilding. Eventually, László did complete his degree in viticulture and is now known as one of the most adventurous and successful winemakers in Tokaj Wine Region. (And he is still known to knock out a few bench presses once in a while!)

László Majoros

11 acres

3 acres

2001

Vinnai, Kövesd, Előhegy, Agyag, Deák

50 % of vineyards planted with Furmint
2 different dry Furmint varietals made every year.

Annual Production: 1600 cases, 400 of which being Furmint

 

Personal take on Furmint:
“It’s my belief that producers in Tokaj haven’t yet realized the incredible international marketing appeal of dry Furmint wines. Furmint, this unique varietal, is a true “diamond in the rough”. I think that says it all.”
