György Villa history
The history of human civilisation and wine production cannot be separated. Time is preserved in the vintage of a wine, in the memory of humans, and in the very existence of rocks. The ancient stones of György Villa have seen long-past cultures, the memories of the hard-working winegrowers, and the villa-builder's passion for life. It is well worth entering this marvellous building and bringing back the memory of our predecessors while sipping a glass of excellent wine. At the beginning of the 16th century, the settlement, where the Villa is standing today, was given to the Franciscan Order. At the beginning of the 1500s, the Franciscans built a cellar here and continued making and selling wines. During the Turkish occupation, the Franciscans fled. However, the vineyards still adorned the region which was called the cape of sweet morsels ("Sekerli lokva burum") at the time.
