Annamária Réka Koncz has a wooden basket press and mostly larger 1000L top plastic fermenters and a few pristine used barrels she purchased from Tokaji Hétszőlő. Grapes are usually destemmed, foot crushing is standard, and punchdowns are the main techniques. Wines are typically fermented and aged in plastic until bottling.

The fruit for this wine is purchased from an organic producer in the Mátra appellation. Half of the fruit is crushed and destemmed and the rest is fermented whole cluster. Annamária is very careful to seal off the open plastic vat and capture as much CO2 as possible to protect the fruit. No wood is used at any point. The color looks more like a Kadarka/light Gamay at first glance, but its brightness is matched with some texture and structure.
