Petrács is the name of our best vineyard in the village of Tolcsva. The name Petrács comes from the plots' former owner, Baron Ernest von Petrasch, Major General in the Imperial Army of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, to whom this magical enclave was given in 1762.
When Oremus was searching for the best plots to produce dry wine, the uniqueness of Petrács revealed itself. On one hand, the bedrock is andesite, and the soil contains abundant semiprecious gems resulting in great minerality in the wine. On the other hand, our oldest, 60 years-old vines, are located in this vineyard and we cultivate them in the traditional bush-vine with great planting density. Because of this and the steepness of the slope, only humans and horses can work in the vineyard, so we keep hundreds of years of tradition of manual labor.
The hand-picked bunches are gently pressed, giving way to the fermentation which takes place in new French and Hungarian oak barrels. The wine is later aged in oak barrels for 3 months, stirring up the lees every week ("batonnage") and in complete tranquility for another 5 months. In August the wine is racked from the barrels and ageing continues in stainless steel tanks for another six months until it is bottled in February.
