Judit & Jószef Bodó
7ha. under vine
Judit and Jószef hail from Csallóköz, an ethnic Hungarian region of Slovakia, where their families had settled in the aftermath of the First World War. Whilst studying agriculture, Judit spent time at an apple plantation and vineyard in Tirol, whose owners then invested in some vineyards in Tokaj. Judit was asked to move there to manage and maintain these vineyards. While Judit was occupied, Jószef, an artist, sought out some vineyards they could acquire and call their own. The Bodó’s own estate and winery, Bott, was created in 2005. All the wines are single vineyard selections.
