'Growing up in a winemaking family: both the vineyard and the cellar have functioned as playground for me from an early age.'
Dorka is a fourth generation winemaker from the village of Tállya in the southwest corner of Tokaj. Her Grandmother managed the vineyards and sold to the COOP during Communism and her parents restarted commercial production during the early re-privatization period. While all things wine were ubiquitous during her childhood, she never considered it a career. But in 2016 she made the leap and studied viticulture in Budapest & Lyon where she was also exposed to natural wines.
Dorka has since increased to 3 hectares spread across the single vineyards (dűlő) of Hetény, Dongó, Görbe, Bártfai, Sas alja, and Nyergesek.
All grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, then pressed without crushing. Most lots are spontaneously fermented in stainless steel, then aged further on the lees in stainless along with shorter élevage in barrel as most of her barrels are so young. All wines are bottled without filtering or fining and the only addition is SO2.
