From the architect. In the historical center of the small Tokaj village, on a plot directly adjacent to a 15th century church, our task entailed designing a winery that will produce quality Tokaj wines.

The basic concept underlying the building’s design was to build a new winery by making use of all valuable elements of the greatly remodeled, original stone building. As a result the integreation of old and new, the original elements, like the laid stone wall, are now displayed within the building.

After the removal of layers of plaster during the uncovering of the small house, it has been discovered that beautiful stone walls have been hidden underneath for several hundred years. As a modern, dry-laid structure, the new facades of the building as well as its roof have been made from a yellow-grey stone, originating from nearby Mád.

The stone panels on the roof are laid in a manner that resembles the original tile-covered house, yet with the roof planes already implying a new and progressive mass.
