• Vida, Péter

    The vineyards of Péter Vida are located on the gentle slopes of the Szekszárd wine region and they cover altogether some 20 hectares. The plantations spread across domains of Bakta, Baranyavölgy, Csötönyivölgy, Hidaspetre, Lisztesvölgy and Virághegy. The surrounding hills provide protection against harsh weather and support a microclimate that is ideal for wine growing purposes.

Half of grapes are harvested from own plantations, while the rest is bought by the winery from high-quality producers in the region - all harvests are then processed together in Bakta.

    According to the philosophy of Péter Vida wine is a wonderful, living creature, a divine miracle - even a lifetime is not enough to get to know him well enough. He has been engaged in fine wine making for some forty years: already in his childhood he registereg his father's Kadarka to the local wine competition - the unexpected victory eventually led him to the profession of becoming a winemaker. He and his son portray a rare, missionary spirit and as father and son they are authentic representatives of a harmonic symbiosis with nature. Sharing their unique philosophy is one of their key objectives.
