General description: The area can be found in a protected valley behind Szársomlyó hill, toward Nagyharsány. It is part of the Black-hill which includes altogether 25 ha land and it almost completely belongs to teh Gere family. This once famous area got its name after the family originally farming it and later became a victim of the large-scale production as it was left fallow for 40 years. The renovation and the planting of the area was started by Attila Gere in 1998. The first harvest was in 2001.

This slope lies higher than the rest, because the elevation here reaches 230-250 m. It is quite a steep (15-20%) southwest-facing area. The grapes for the top wine of the winery (Kopár cuvée) partly comes from this area.

Soil: The soil is loess and red clay on limestone-dolomite basis. In some parts triad age dolomite, limestone and Jurassic limestone are mixed with loess. A lot of limy stones can be seen in the whole area, some of them fist sized. The wines coming from this plot show a mineral quality.

Micro climate: It is a little colder than the Kopár slope because of the higher location, but otherwise it has similar climatic properties.

Varieties: Portugieser, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah.

Farming method: Middle (70 cm) cordon, twin stocks, 7.200 stocks/ha.
