Its wines can be compared to the ones made in Eger, but the acidity of the latter is a bit lower. In the intimate wine cellars sitting in the nearby hills wine is usually produced with a traditional oxydative method. Saint Martin Wine Order plays a big part in preserving and creating values.

The Bükk wine region

24 settlements belong to this wine region. Its soil is mostly loess formed through the weathering of rhyolite tuff. This area is rich in sunshine but poor in precipitation and the temperature is a bit cooler than the Hungarian average. Thus this land is suitable for producing white wines. The wines made here are usually light with a noticeable sense of acidity, thin and fruity. In the small wineries wines are usually made with an oxidative technique, however bigger wineries make reductive wines from white grapes, but rosé and barrique, as well.

Typical types of grapes
White: Riesling, Chardonnay, Cserszegi fueszeres, Leanyka, Muller-Thurgau, Tramini, Ottonel muscatel
Blue: Kékfrankos (Blue Frankish), Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Merlot, Zweigelt, Pinot noir

Wine Route
In 2002 the Bükkalja Wine Route Association was created. It is based in Tibolddaróc and its members are trying to make the Bükk wine region ranked as high as the famous, top wine regions.
