Experience Degustation and Winery Tours
During the degustation in the stone cellar with capacity of 30 persons you soak up the unrepeatable atmosphere of maturing wine. The pleasant atmosphere prevails here whole year round and the temperature chills in the summer and warms up agreeably in the winter. The best way to feel the spirit of this place is in the shadow at the chestnuts at the wooden table for 15 persons. You can also admire the view of Carpathian chain.
In harmony with Hečko tradition, Magula family specialize in red wine production. Their frankovka blue 2011 was brought to professional public notice in 2013 already, after it won some golden medals in home and international competitions. You can taste the traditional sort Portugais Bleu in three forms: classic red wine one year matured in oak barrels, elegant barrique wine matured two years in new oak barrels and innovative "carbonique" wine made just within two months through carbon maceration.
Except for red wines you can also taste fresh rose wine Rose Wolf (connecting grapes from Rose and Wolf Valley), piquant Veltliner and spicy Welsch. Both white wines matured in fine yeast sediments that gave them full and interesting taste and flavour.
In autumn, they offer you within the degustation roasted chestnuts from their own growing, one of the biggest in Slovakia.
