Borfalu Bortéka

Palota Borház has created a family, which consists of three types of wine. Each wine is named as a natural mineral. A real jewel decorates each bottle of wine.

Rubin Wine is the first one. It’s Balatonboglári Cabernet Sauvignon, from 2003. The harvest is considered one of the best in last years. The grape had been gathered at a top of the Kecskés Mountain and ripened in oak-barrels for a year. After careful selection the best berries were placed into bottles, which are decorated by the jewels. You’ll understand why it’s named so if you only have a look at the bottle.

A long time ago an emerald was considered a symbol of immortality and eternal youth. Smaragd Wine is in harmony with its ancient tradition. This young Rhine Riesling 2006 was made by reductive technology. Important to mention, that the wine’s color has a memorable emerald green tint.

The third wine will be Topáz. About this wine you’ll know a bit later. Now we can tell you only that it’s Tokaji wine. (source)

Palota Borház Company represents Tisli Wine. This is Rhine Riesling from Balatonboglár region – the southern shore of Lake Balaton.

Maybe the name of the wine is unknown to many people. Sándor Márai has started its story. He is considered with Béla Hamvas and Gyula Krúdy side by side as the writers who had been writing a lot about wines. Márai had mentioned in his stories about the great pleasure of talking, drinking a glass of a good wine and sitting on a terrace. The wine is light and great for keeping any conversation.

Finally, wine-makers were pleased with warm and sunny summer in 2006, after long and rainy years. Tisli wine was produced in that year. Thanks to the fact of wine-makers’ great job and fine weather, the wine can be consumed in itself, in case of being in a good company (source)
