The Hummel Winery in Villány, Hungary was founded in 1998 by Horst Hummel.
It has 7.5 ha of vineyards with the varieties Portugieser, Kékfrankos (Lemberger), Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Hárslevelü and Furmint come from leased land. Traminer is produced from purchased grapes.
The farm has been managed according to the rules of organic viticulture since 2008. Since 2016, we have been using biodynamic preparations in the vineyards. Since 2020, the farm has been managed according to the rules of Natural Synergetic Winegrowing developed by Horst Hummel.
The white wines are fermented on the skins for 3-20 days, depending on the variety, and then matured on the lees in vats or in used barriques. The red wines are fermented in open fermentation vats with mild extraction and then matured on the lees in tanks or in used oak barrels of different ages and provenance. The wines mature for up to two years, depending on the variety.
It is the declared aim of the winery to produce unadulterated, independent wines full of character with healthy, high-quality grapes from Naturally Synergetic Viticulture NSW, which reflect the characteristics of the grape variety, the soil and the special Villány climate.
