About Tamás Pók

Upon first encounter, Tamás Pók's gentle demeanor might suggest caution, but beneath his unassuming facade lies one of Hungary's most seasoned and inventive wine artisans. With roots at the state-run Egervin and refinement in California, complemented by a significant tenure at the Kecskemét Research Institute and leadership of the Antinori-backed Hungarian venture Eurobor, Pók has remained a vanguard of Hungary's wine renaissance. Initially trained as an ampelographer, his mastery of grapes is evident, particularly in his advocacy for Eger Bikavér's classic blend and the revival of indigenous varietals like Leányka and Zengő. Today, Pók stands as a prominent figure within the Terra Hungarica movement, championing organic viticulture and natural winemaking.

About the Region

Eger,

Eger, located in the northeastern part of Hungary, produces natural wines that epitomize the region's rich winemaking heritage and diverse terroir. Nestled among rolling hills and limestone plateaus, Eger benefits from a continental climate and a range of soil types, including volcanic tuff and clay. Here, winemakers embrace sustainable farming practices and minimal intervention in the cellar, allowing the true expression of the fruit and the land to shine through. Indigenous grape varieties such as Kadarka, Kékfrankos, and Furmint thrive in this unique environment, yielding wines of exceptional purity and complexity. From elegant and aromatic whites to bold and robust reds, Eger's natural wines capture the essence of the region's vibrant terroir and cultural heritage, inviting drinkers to experience the true essence of Hungarian winemaking with each sip.
