Pelle Pince is a passion-project begun by Laszlo & Marriana, as an homage to the region and grape varieties of Mád in Tokaj. László is a successful banker, and so not overly concerned with the winery turning a profit, but still is one of the most dedicated and committed winemakers with whom we work. He is now assisted by vineyard manager and winemaker Dénes. Emphasis is placed on the individual vineyard plots surrounding the Pelle house just outside Mád. Vineyard selection is extremely rigorous, and any fruit not making the grade is taken to László’s distillery to be turned into a sublime pálinka. As such, total bottle production is tiny, varying hugely from year to year. So selective is László that he opted not to release any wine at all from the disastrous 2014 vintage.
