About Gál Tibor

The Gál Tibor Winery is one of the leading wineries in the Eger wine region. The winery was founded in 1993 by Gál Tibor Sr. In 1989, Gál Tibor was working as a supervising winemaker for Egervin when he was offered a chance to work for Ornellaia in Tuscany. He moved his family to Tuscany and worked his way up to head winemaker at the estate. In 1992, he returned home to Eger to start his own winery. In the years that followed, he developed the winery while continuing to work as an international consultant until his untimely death in South Africa in 2005. The family took over the winery, and the management of the winery passed to his son Gál Tibor Jr.

Of the winery today, Tibor Jr. says, “Our main objective is to give a new life to the wine culture and traditions by incorporating the most modern of viticulture technologies. Gál Tibor Sr. was the first person in Eger who realized the importance of terroir-based viticulture, and based on his experiences chose the best rootstocks and clones for our vineyards. Our aim is to bring back the good reputation of the Egri Bikavér (Bull’s Blood of Eger) and build up the fame of our newcomer white called the Egri Csillag (Star of Eger). Our 40 hectares are comprised of brilliant slopes, and in them, we observe yield regulation and vineyard control to ensure excellent grape quality. Our contemporary wines are characterized by their own style.”
