Bock Cellar is a family-run winery in Villàny, Hungary, that has become a real national and international success story.
The tradition of growing grapes and making wine in the family goes back several decades, even centuries.
The ancestors settled in Hungary from Germany in the 18th century. The family has been engaged in grape growing and winemaking in the Villány wine region since 1850. Since then, the love of wine and the tricks of making it have been passed down from father to son, and this family business has grown from this.
Nowadays, behind the success is clearly an understanding wife and a stable family. József Bock's wife, Valéria, previously worked as a teacher, but gave up her profession for the sake of the ever-growing family business.
It was natural for the children to follow their parents' path, so today they are all active in the family business. In other words, it can be said that the Bock brand is currently represented by 2 generations of the family.
Bock vineyards are located in the southern part of Hungary, in the Villány wine region. They currently farm 80 hectares of their own and another 70 hectares of integrated land. Their territories are located in the best vineyards of the Villány wine region (Ördögárok, Jammertál, Fekete-hegy, Bocor, Makár, Kopár-dűlő), which mainly grow red grape varieties.
