These photographs from the winery and wine cellar dates from some year back, before the renewal of the entire operation started. Tibor Gal started making wine in 1983 and was very successful in different wineries in Italy. He also set up his own winery in Eger in 1993. He returned to Hungary in 1997 and set up a winery in collaboration with Niccolo Incisa della Roccetta that was named the GIA Tibor Gal. The winery was located on a small street in Eger.
After Tibor Gal’s untimely death in an accident in 2005 the operation has been continued by the Gal family and is now run by tabor Gal jr.
The winery now makes several different wines: Egri bikaver Superios (from kekfrankos, syrah, cabernet sauvignon, kadarka and pinot noir), Pinot Noir, Sikeghy Pinot Noir, Bartok (from viognier, pinot gris, and pinot blanc), a white Egri Csillag and a second Egri Bikaver.
