Badacsony wine region (North of Lake Balaton)
It is a stunning area surrounded with basalt mountains on the north shore of the Lake Balaton. The basalt mountains of the area are not only unique and picturesque geological relics, they are also the habitat of many rare plants and animals. In addition to the natural values its vineyards dating back to the Roman times.
The wine region has a sub- Mediterranean microclimate. The tempering effect of the water mass of the Lake Balaton, the heat in the basalt cap of the mountain, the reflection of the sunrays from the water surface onto the mountainside and the most intensive sun radiation in the country, guarantee one of the best grapes in Hungary.
The Badacsony hills have numerous wine cellars as you walk upwards, often with terraces, as a reward on the top the Kisfaludy house is waiting for you (wine cellar/restaurant) with its beautiful panorama.
