The Patricius Winery is found in the Tokaj region and was established by the Kekessy family. The Kekessy family’s winemaking mission is nurtured by their family history. The owners are Dezso Kekessy and his daughter Katinka Kekessy.
The family’s maternal and paternal ancestors were well-known vineyard owners in the regions of the Tokaj and Matra foothills from the 18thcentury. The maternal ancestors—the Okolicsanyi family—had vineyards in Tokaj, Szegi, and Szoloske, and also held important offices as public servants (Deputy Lord-Lieutenant, Member of Parliament). The winery is a reconstructed winepress house of the vineyard Varhegy. The building was previously owned by Jesuits and various aristocratic families, such as the Wolkenstein and Falkenheim, Szechenyi and Rakoczi, Falkenstein and Hohenlohe. Even though the building was used as a simple presshouse, it was mentioned in the Tokaj – Hegyalja Albumof 1867.
The characteristics of this old building have been preserved while also being integrated into a modern center of an estate.
Our Tokaj winery, the famous Aszu, and other Tokaj wines, such as the Yellow Muscat, represent the finest achievements of Hungarian wines all over the world.
