Sauska Vineyards in Tokaj, Hungary

Founded by Christian and Andrea Sauska, the Sauska family`s Tokaj winery has been crafting sweet and dry white wines for nearly 20 years. In addition to the aszú and late harvest wines, the winery introduced its first dry vintage in 2009 followed by sparkling wines in 2011. The Sauska family opened its second winery in Villány in 2008. Their Bordeaux-blends, single varietal reds and Rosé are among the most sought-after wines of Hungary around the world. The Sauska family is dedicated to the production of handcrafted, artisanal wines that reflect the terroir of their individual vineyards, with great enthusiasm on indigenous varietals, such as Furmint in Tokaj and Kadarka in Villány.

With a gravity-fed winery, uncompromising grape selection and wild yeast fermentation the norm, all Sauska wines are characterised by precision, typicity and elegance. Slick, minimalist labelling, a super-clean, state-of-the-art winery (where they use special lamps made by Christian Sauska’s bluechip lighting company, Light Sources, to clean their barrels) and, crucially, a very engaged, young, largely homegrown winemaking team for whom innovation in technology and experimentation in winemaking are of paramount importance (eg, experiments with amphorae-style vessels for fermentation and ageing of fruity varieties such as Kadarka, Kékfrankos and Portugeiser) mark Sauska out as one of the most dynamic wineries in the region.
