Producer

Horst Hummel was born near Stuttgart. His family is a Schwabian/Hungarian mix. His great-grandfather was a winemaker in the Austro-Hungarian empire. In 1997 Horst visited Hungary, mostly to get a sense of his family origins. Passionate about wine, he wanted to visit the best winemaking regions during that trip. And so he came to Villány (southern Hungary). And he fell in love with the climate and wine culture. Horst casually asked his hosts about the price for vineyards. And just within days, he became a happy owner of a plot in Villány. By 1998 Hummel winery was up and running. Today Horst lives in Berlin but often commutes back and force between his home and Villány.

Weingut Hummel practices organic farming since 2008 and follows biodynamic principles since 2016. On the 7.5 ha vineyards, they grow Kékfrankos, Portugieser, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Furmint, Traminer, and Hárslevelű.

Tasting new releases from Hummel. This lovely Kékfrankos (Blaufrankisch) is officially classified as rosé, but I would call it very light red. Neat yet simple bouquet: wild berries compote, cranberry, wild strawberry and raspberry (you see, lot’s of berries here even though not all of them are berries). VA plays nicely here by adding complexity and volume. Juicy, delicious and simply quaffable.

Resi is exactly the type of rosé I love. It’s more like a very light red. Simple yet charming. Wild berries compote, a fistful of red berries and a tiny bit of VA. Juicy and easy to drink.
