Erzsébet Winery is a family winery. Miklós Prácser and his wife Erzsébet founded it in 1992. The family bought the former Russian czar’s wine-buying cellar in Bém Street in the centre of Tokaj to return to the maternal line’s craft, Tokaj winemaking. The family’s first bottled wine was a 11993 Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos. Today they make between 6 000 and 10 000 bottles annually depending on the vintage, from single-vineyard dry wines to great sweet wines.
Their land is around Mád, Bodrogkeresztúr and Tarcal in vineyards historically classed as first- and second-class, for example Király, Betsek, Sajgó and Zafír, currently 9.5 hectares are producing. They are preparing for planting land in Veresek and Kővágó, Mád. They practise careful cultivation of the vines, strict yield control and work with small lots. Their aim is a gradual transition to organic growing. The second generation is already involved with the family estate. The work is assisted by American Master of Wine Ronn Wiegand. The winemaker is Miklós Prácser Jr.
