The Patricius Winery was established by the Kékessy family’s oenological vocation for the future, which derives from the past. The owners are Dezsõ Kékessy and his daughter Katinka Kékessy. The family’s ancestors both in maternal and paternal ascending line were well-known vineyard owners in the regions of the hills of Mátra and Tokaj from the 18th century. The maternal ancestors – the Okolicsányi family- had vineyards in Tokaj, Szegi and Szõlõske. Besides they held important offices as public servants (deputy – lieutenant, Member of Parliament). The winery is a rebuilt wine-press house in the vineyard Várhegy. The building was owned by the Jesuits and various aristocratic families as Wolkenstein and Falkenstein, and the counts Széchenyi – Falkenstein, Rákóczi and Hohenlohe. It was used as a simple press – house, however, it already appears in the Tokaj – Hegyalja Album in 1867. The characteristics of this old building have been preserved while it is integrated in a modern winery.
This wine carries the strong character of the vintage. It announces in its fragrance and taste the apricot and peach hues of the aszu grape. Smoky and honeyed aromas with hints of peach and apple. Richly sweet on the palate with notes of barley and lemon and an appetising freshness.
