Hertelendy Vineyards

Hertelendy wines represent our 300-year old Hungarian family tradition over several centuries and continents! From 18th-century vineyards in Slovakia to Great-Uncle Gábor Hertelendy in Hungary to today – these traditions have been reborn in the New World with quality vintage selections from the Napa Valley to bridge both sides of the Atlantic.

Our story in a few more words

Founder and Vintner Ralph Hertelendy and winemaking consultant Phillip Corallo-Titus create wines that meet in the middle of their styles, birthing beautiful compromising expressions that wouldn’t otherwise have been made. They have formed a symbiotic relationship over the years, and continue to push the envelope with their winemaking techniques in the pursuit towards elegance, complexity, and winemaking perfection.

Since our 2016 launch with our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon debut, we are honored and humbled to have been well received so quickly by the wine community festooned with awards (Gold at Texsom, Double Gold, Best in Class at Sunset International Wine Competition) and ratings (consistently between 95-99 points by the world’s most influential critics). With each harvest, we strive to handcraft the most balanced wine that expresses the unique character and complexity of our terroir. In our winemaking practices, we adhere to the “Rome wasn’t built in a day” philosophy. Our red wines typically barrel age for 23 months, our whites barrel age for 19 months, and all wines are then bottle aged another year to settle before it’s poured in your glass. That makes our total process from vine to table approximately 3 years of the utmost care and detailed attention. We believe wine is liquid art, and we hope you appreciate our masterpiece.
