• Kovács, Nimród

    The essence of fine wine is rooted in the unique terroir, where the grapes are raised. The Kovács Nimród Winery is fortunate to have plantations in three of the top terroirs in the Eger wine growing region.

    Portrait Nimród Kovács Since Eger is a cool climate region, similar to Burgundy or cooler climates of California, planted varieties that feel very much at home were planted, and the winery is capable of producing world class wines. In addition to these international varietals which include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, they also proudly feature traditional Hungarian varietals, such as Furmint and Kékfrankos.

    These grapes are farmed using sustainable practices and every year they hand harvest the healthy and happy grapes which are then being gently guided into fine wines.

    NJK WeineThe Kovács Nimród Winery is situated in seven continuous cellars on the historic Verőszala street in the town of Eger. Back in the 18th century, there were hundreds and hundreds of wine press houses in Eger, very much like their own, which were erected above their respective cellars to handle onsite processing of the grapes. After the grape juice fermented, the wines were stored in barrels in the cool cellars below. Guided by this tradition, the Kovács Nimród Winery continues to make wine in a similar way, but aided by 21st century technology.
