Béla and Bandi
Béla and András Fodor’s names are only known to insiders, but if the “Béla és Bandi” name appears on wine bottles, many wine lovers know that they can expect well-priced, easy-drinking mostly reductive wines from the two brothers based in the Balatonfüred-Csopak wine region. Their ten-hectare estate near Balatonszőlős cultivates Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Olaszrizling, Zöldveltelini, Chardonnay, Kékfrankos and Merlot in the Gella, Málnás, Száka and Barát vineyards. It is also rumoured that they make the Gellavilla wines.
