The vineyards are planted on the volcanic soils and high altitude sites of Mad, whose historic vineyard classification dates back to the 1700s. The outlook at Barta is one of custodianship – they see themselves as part of recently re-established traditions, striving to “preserve as best as possible both the appearance and soils of this exceptional land for future generations”.
Winemaker Vivien Ujvári joined Barta Cellar in July 2016, after working her way around vineyards in Napa Valley, New Zealand, Australia and Tokaji. Her team’s winemaking philosophy is one of minimal intervention, aiming for purity and character in their wines, achieved through organic farming. Spanning dry styles as well as Szamorodni and Aszu, Barta’s wines are a celebration of the distinctive Furmint variety, reflecting the unique qualities of their exceptional terroir.
