Petracs is the first great white wine of the Oremus-Vega Sicilia domain. Made from the best and oldest vineyard in the village of Tolcsva (Northern Hungary), with Furmint vines at least 60 years old. 2017 is the first year. The vineyard is located on a steep slope, which means that no machining is possible. Only manpower and animal power. The Furmint grape ferments takes place on French and Hungarian oak. 3 months batonnage and then another 5 months élevage. Then 6 months in stainless steel before bottling. This top white 'Vega-Sicilia' has a storage potential of at least 15 years
In 1991 the Spanish family Álvarez, owner of the famous Vega Sicilia, started negotiations to take over the vineyards in Tokaj. In 1993 Vega Sicilia acquired the company and the vineyards gave it the name 'Oremus'. 'Oremos' in Spanish means 'Let us pray' and this is Oremus in Latin.
The history of the vineyards of this Tokaj estate dates back to 1616 when Prince György Rákóczi acquired the vineyards of what is now Oremus. It became the first Aszu. In 1993, Vega Sicila acquired the company and renamed it 'Oremus'. Much was invested in the renewal of the company and a technical team from Vega Sicilia saw to it that - with respect for tradition - a high-quality wine was made. oremus
Oremus works exclusively with grapes from its own vineyards. It has 100 hectares of vineyards spread over 13 historic plots. The total vine of Tokaj covers 5000 ha. Production is 100-150,000 bottles per year. Oremus produces three different wines: Oremus Tokaji Dry Mandolás, Oremus Late Harvest and Oremus Tokaji Aszú. Oremus wines are exported to 54 countries. The main customers are: the United States, Brazil, Scandinavia (Sweden and Finland), Switzerland, Spain and Japan. The four main grape varieties are furmint, hárslevelü, sárga muskotály and zeta. Zéta is a crossing of furmint and bouvier.
Vega Sicilia now has five special domains in the group. Oremus plays a special role in this. They are wines with character and can be used gastronomically.
