The 18th century Baroque winery is located at the center of Bodrogkeresztúr and went under renovation in 2011 using local stones and oak, combined with modern materials, while keeping the feel of the original building. Fuleky produces a range of wine styles from indigenous varieties which combine intensity, complexity and finnesse. Fulop the Phenomenon is a tribute to Fulop, the distinctive local stork who decided to make his home in Bodrogkeresztúr.
