100 % Leányka
In case of children’s births, priests and cantors were paid by vines planted into the vineyards of the Church. A lot of children were born, mostly girls. From the planted vines a new variety had been born and the priests wanted to give a name to the new variety. They thought about choosing the girl’s name after whose christening the most vines were planted. This caused a conflict between the locals. To stop this and please everybody, the priests decided to give the name ‘Leanyka’ – meaning young girl – to the new variety.
We harvested the shrivelled, not-yet aszu grapes at the end of October from Almagyar Slope.
