About the Winery:
Established in 1999, György Lörincz's St Andrea Winery in the Eger region of Hungary is synonymous with elegant, refined wines. He grows 18 different grape varieties, consciously looking for the tastes that are individual to a piece of land. Oak barrels then cradle these rich, fruity and sophisticated wines.
In addition to being awarded "Best Hungarian Winemaker" in 2009, he was also named as the best Eger winemaker and received the Hungarian Order of Merit in 2007.
