The Szent Tamás winery was founded by 2
Hungarian Businessmen and the son of Hungary's most famous and
influential producers- Istevan Szepsy.
They firmly believe the village of MÁD in the remote Tokaj
region of Hungary is one of the great wine producing areas of the
world. Working with vineyards that were shaped by several volcanic
eruptions millions of years ago, their goal is to ensure that the
once world renowned Tokaj Crus of MÁD would capture wine world`s
Currently are working with 15 hectares of old vines in 9
different Crus, the MÁD Dry Furmint was created to be a
benchmark representation of the village of MÁD through the
collaborative work of the Szent Tamás winery and an ever growing
number of small landowners.
The village of MÁD, the most prestigious in the region of Tokaj
is still composed of many plots of small growers, the aim has been
to raise the viticultural standards of the growers by guaranteeing
a purchase of their grapes at an above market price dependent on
their working with the Mad viticulturalists. This ensures an
excellent supply of high quality grapes. The vineyards for these
wines sit on the south and western sides of the hill overlooking
the village and are planted on predominantly red clay, zeolite
Malota and quartz rhyolite soils.
