Kékfrankos - Csányi Winery

They own vineyards of outstanding quality, cultivated to the best of their knowledge, with the utmost care. The total area exceeds 380 hectares. The annual turnover of 2 million bottles is also a sign that they are heading in the right direction, their wines are widely popular.
