Founded in 1999, Dr Géza Balla’s namesake winery can be found on Minis Hill above the banks of the River Mureș just east of Arad in Romania.
Situated on a mix of granite, diorite and mudstone rich soils, the well positioned vines thrive in long sunshine hours moderated with cool evenings moderated by the Mureș. A trained chemist, Balla makes some of our favourite wines with a gorgeous balance between fruit, acidity and structure. The ‘Classic’ series of red wines come wrapped in beautiful presentation as Balla believes every wine is a gift. His sparkling wine, ‘Clarus’, is made from the very rare Mustoasa de Maderat grape in the traditional method style.
