Felső-Bácska (Upper Bácska) in the mid-southern part of Hungary is historically an important fruit producing region, with premium classification. The Jánoshalma sub region especially enjoys the favorable effects of the continental climate, on average it reaches 2000/2200 sunshine hours with the annual average temperature being around 10-12 C.
Though the annual rainfall, in the range of 550/750 mm is sometimes below the necessary water supply, the garden itself is situated in a lower altitude, higher moisture content area, satisfying the quince productions yearly demand.
The topsoil is black and brown arable land with high nutrient content, while the mineral rich calcareous subsoil ensures the necessary acidity vital for the fresh and crisp fruits with concentrated aroma and taste profile.
In order to achieve the most aroma possible and taste profile, the garden contents five subvarieties of quince, including mainly Vranja, responsible for the backbone of our quince pálinka.
The choice of subvarieties also reflects our belief, that the elegance of pear quince and the body and power of apple quince underpin the complexity of quince pálinka.
