Koch’s attitude to winemaking is to approach it with as little intervention as possible. He is a lover of nature and he encourages wildlife around his winery and vineyards to thrive. His theory is that with less intervention in nature’s cycles, nature takes care of itself especially with regards to pest control. On vineyard you will find apple and other fruit trees growing happily next to the vines. All grapes are harvested by hand. His vineyards are based in two locations, Hajós Bajai and the famous Villany. They are both very different in terms of soil and altitude. The vineyards in Barota are in the fertile plain, whilst the vineyards in Villany have altitude of 400 meters and limestone soils with clay. This allows Koch to grow many different type of grapes, indigenous and international. He grows 11 different types and has a small nursery where he experiments with old and new grape DNA and crossings.
