About the estate
Biodynamic wine estate with stunning views of Lake Balaton and the rolling volcanic hills of the north shore.
When you first see Szent György-hegy, the hill that gives home to our estate, you will utterly fall in love with it. The spirit and the untouched nature of this place will change your life forever.
We started making wine just for ourselves, which is still to this day is inspired by the excitement of experimentation and the ways to discover the potential in the terroir that surrounds us.
Our main goal is making natural wines in order to show the most of the volcanic soil. We try to focus on exploring traditional Hungarian grape varieties and cultivate what is given by nature.
Beside cultivating vineyards and making wine, we felt the need to provide accomodation for guests arriving to winetasting. When we bought the vineyards on the hillside, we also transformed the old summer houses into guesthouses.
The structure of the guesthouse, the yoga platform and the natural, tranquil environment makes our estate the ideal yoga retreat venue in Hungary, for small to medium sized groups.
Built in 1807, it is one of the oldest houses on the hill. The house’s structure is made up of enormeus pieces of basalt stones which are the bedrock of Szent György-hegy. In 2013, we rebuilt it by strengthening its original oak beams and fixing up its facade’s design. The thatched roof also gives this traditional house a fresh look. This is a marvelous getaway for couples, providing cool air with its thick walls in the summer and warmth with its fireplace in the winter.
The name ” Mandulás” derives from the almond trees surrounding the building. When they bloom in the spring theirwonderful scent fills the house when you open the windows. This place is dominated by its colours, the bathrooms have a warm Mediterranean feel to them. From its porch you can have a good view of Badacsony and Keszthely. We created a cozy vibe with the kitchen-dining room space where great evenings with friends can take place. You find a double room and two rooms with two single beds upstairs, where you can have the rest you need.
This house was named after the fig bushes next to it, giving fruit twice a year. On the terrace you may enjoy the picturesque view, inside you can rest surrounded by elegance and comfort. Upstairs, there is a double room and a room with two single beds. The country-style kitchen and dining room is in the cellar, giving enough space for 15 people to dine and wine.
There is a beautiful covered yoga platform with views right next to the vineyard for approximately 15 yogis.
The venue has a fine dining restaurant that the group can use exclusively (menu will be designed before the event).
You have access to our biodynamic wine and the village of Hegymagas has numerous wineries with very interesting wines.
We serve local, tasty and pure, clean food. We cater special diets and for those with food allergies.
The menu is based on ancient Hungarian recepies and is made of local, organic ingredients. We consider our menu as “food archeology” and we offer dishes that you can not find anywhere else.
