Szomolya is not a place one can say they find themselves often, or ever for that matter. But if you do happen to find yourself in this beautiful land outside of Eger take pleasure in the fact that you have stumbled upon one of the great hidden gems of the wine world. Here you will find Hegyi-Kaló. Don’t look for a showpiece winery, or even a sign: you won’t find one, this is a home. The Kaló family makes its one of a kind wines in their modest cellar hand carved out of the hillside behind their house.
Hegyi-Kaló produces authentic traditional wines from local varieties, like Leányka, Olaszrizling, Medina, Kékfrankos and Turán. The family estate cultivates the vineyards by historical Hungarian methods, fermenting with native yeast, and aging the wines in barrels for years without any additives or industrial technology. At bottling they never use filtration or fining methods and many of the wines are the contents of a single barrel.
