Saito means "lis" in Hungarian and is a reference to the original wooden houses in the vineyards, which were called "Sajtohaz". They pressed the grapes directly in them and let them ferment, then they transported the wine straight to the cellars. The grapes come from an old vineyard planted in 1926 by Grandfather Brutler, and the old "Sajtohaz" still stands there today.
The planting consists of 10-15 original varieties that could not be identified, not even in the laboratory. The grapes were trampled and in contact with the must, including the pods, for 6 days. Half of the wine was fermented and matured in used oak barrels (225 l) and the other in clay amphorae for one year. Before bottling, only 10 mg of sulfur came into the wine. Dark golden color, intense herbal aroma, strong spicy taste. Very original wine.
