Like many pioneering wineries we have a story. Josef the owner and winemaker was born in Hungary and grew up along the shores of Lake Constance in Southern Germany. Josef had wine in his veins as his grandfather had a winery in the picturesque valleys of Central Hungary. (Which prior to the world wars was one of the premier winemaking areas of Europe- but that’s another story). After studying and then apprenticing in baking Josef immigrated to the states in the late 50s where he pursued a number of interests in the restaurant and food business in both New York City and Chicago.
