The Eger wine region lies in the North East of Hungary, at the foot of the Bükk Mountains. The region is endowed with unique potentials, thus during the past centuries growing both white and red grapes has expanded. Considering the climate, it should be noted that this is a cooler wine region, which can be traced in the characteristics of the wines made here, e. g.: exciting acids, rich aromas, not excessive tannins, and elegance. All these may not culminate if Eger did not have a soil type possessing a basically strong character which is very complex and varied. The rhyolite tuff substratum of volcanic origin is determinative, and it is primarily covered in very solid and deep brown earth rich in clay. Furthermore, the region is diversified by vineyards with a breathtakingly unique composition of soil in which lime, slate, zeolite, marl, sandstone and other rocks determining the strong character can be found together.

For the winemakers of Eger working today, Egri Bikavér represents the starting point, since it is the basis for defining the wine region as the most well-known Eger wine type with a long historical past. At the same time, wine is the most important thing for more and more wineries, because they see their future in this wine. Like Bikavér, Egri Csillag is a white blend based on domestic grape varieties. In Egri Csillag Classicus, the fresh, fruity, fresh, flowery, floral notes dominate and it is never about a specific variety, but about their harmony. In the superior and grand superior wines of Egri Csillag, matured, medium, or even full-bodied, fruity, discreetly fragrant character and minerality can appear in addition to the spicy tones given by the small wooden barrel aging.
