An evocative renewed vine-dresser house in the heart of Erdőbénye, wine-cellars mellowed by age, modern style and thrilling wines in the glass and the hospitality of Préselő’s team. Everything is set for a perfect relaxation in surroundings of Tokaj-Hegyalja, the part of the World Heritage site…
The Préselő team – the owners Zsolt Nagy, his wife Gabi and Árpád Zöldi-Kovács – has begun their passion for wine almost two decades ago.
Zsolt, an international consultant by profession, sampled the art of grape cultivation in a different vine-region, while Árpád as a viticulture-viniculture engineer was the head winemaker of a local vineyard.
They launched the first vintage in 2013 that was supported by Gabi being the oenologist / wine-tester for harmonizing the savor.
All together is a great set-up whilecompleting the viticulture activities, cellar and wine-testing events.
The quality of Préselő’s genuinely elegant wines are made up based on local conditions and using the intuition of the internationally experienced oenologist / wine-tester.

“We are aiming for a regional hospitality where we are also pleased to relax, where beside our hand-made wine testing events there should be also an adventure feeling, awareness of life provided for our guests.”
The namesake of our winery: the old wine-press, a relic from the ancient harvests
When we launched our winery in Tokaj-Hegyalja, we discovered this old vine-dresser house located in the center of Erdőbénye and we had done our best to renew it in a suitable manner to become our vineyard estate.
Inside of the abandoned house we found this beautiful, industrial relic, double-bedded wine-press, that is placed today in the main part of the yard, being also the eponym of our brand.
The more than 100 years old wine-press has been preserved in a very good shape as the contemporary state-of-the-art technology made in a renowned workshop from Miskolc.
Our vineyards are spreading all around Erdőbénye on almost 8 hectares. The variety of our vineyards’ orientation let us produce approx. 9000 bottles of wine on a yearly basis. Beside the well known Tokaj’s variety of grape based dry wines, we are crafting “Asszú” and late harvest sweet wines as well. Our dedicated passion to make sensational products, we do release for the fourth year “Hárslevelű” based sparkling wines and traditional method sparkling wines as well…
