Péter Szabó, owner of Lucullus Wine House, bought the estate as a bartender in early 1990s from the Nyőgér family who returned to their native village from Budapest and used the house above the cellar as residence. According to the land-register, the property belonged to the lieutenant of Beled until 1939, and used to cover the area between the road leading to the castle and the Séd spring, but now is mainly divided into parcels.
From the varieties grown on the vineyard which currently covers 700 square fathoms, the winery produces Welschriesling, Juhfark, Hárslevelű, Ezerjó and Furmint wines, available for tasting by prior appointment, with optional cold or hot dishes.
The winery of Péter Szabó offers wine-tasting for up to 50 visitors. Accommodation is also available in the cellar for up to 8 guests, and in his nearby inn for up to 16 guests.
The wine cellar offers to his guests a variety of additional programs.
