History & Geography
Villány is the southern most and one of the oldest wine-growing region of Hungary, having very beneficial climatic conditions. It is at the same geographical latitude as the northern part of the Bordeaux wine-growing region. Its climate is considered to be unique from the aspect of viticulture, because the ranges of the Villányi Mountain parries the unfriendly, cold winds from the north, at the same time the warmth of the southern slopes protected from many sides is strengthened by the mild air arriving from the region of the Mediterranean Sea. The history of the Csányi Winery goes back to 1881, when its predecessor Chateau Teleki was found by Zsigmond Teleki, who became very famous at that time for finding decease resistant varieties during the philoxera epidemic that swept all over the Europe. Therefore the fine wines have been produced here for centuries surprising with its new tastes and flavors.
