8638 Balatonlelle, Várszói út
Situated on the southern shore of Lake Balaton, Bujdosó Vineyard is among the most beautiful vineyards of the Somogy hills. It’s a family-owned business, in which three generations put their heart and soul into producing premium quality wine and prosecco with fruity freshness. Referring to their passion for sailing, Bujdosó products are named after classic Balaton sailboats, such as Sirocco, Nemere, and Tramontana. Claiming that life is sparkling in the area in every season, their very first traditional sparkling wine was introduced in 2018.
