The name of the winery, Carpinus, is after Gyertyános (latin for Hornbeam), which is their largest current vineyard. During their lives Edit and István Bai have had the opportunity to work and gain experience at leading wineries (Dr. Loosen , Germany and Alta Vista in Argentina) in and outside Hungary which they now put to good use in their family winery. It is the goal of Carpinus Winery to be an example of a Tokaj winery that with top quality work and family cooperation, without compromise, can run sustainably and build a stable position in the world wine market. Continuing local values established by families from the wine region is of particular importance. The Bai’s have 7 hectares in 7 vineyards in the Tokaj Wine Region. Their vineyards were classed first and second growths according to the historical classifications. Carpinus is working with Autochthonous varieties and placing the greatest emphasis on Furmint. The Bai’s also grow Hárslevelű, Sárga Muskotály and Sauvignon Blanc. Their expectation of themselves is that by making the very best wine possible, they can present the natural assets and varieties of the varied terroirs of the Tokaj Wine Region. The Bai’s Strive to cultivate their grapes with environmentally friendly practices. The individual attributes of the vineyards (soils, aspect, microclimate) are expressed through their single-vineyard wines. Carpinus wines are characteristically fresh, elegant and harmonious, and made to be enjoyed.
