Liszt Wine Family

The teaser products of the Twickel Wine Estate are the members of the "Liszt" wine family. These wines reflect the character of the grape type and the Szekszárd vine-growing region. Franz Liszt was a friend and tutor to Count Geza Zichy, a maternal ancestor of Baron Georg von Twickel. Count Geza Zichy nurtured strong ties to music from his childhood, but at the age of 14, he lost his right arm in a hunting accident. Instead of succumbing to despair, the young count trained himself to become a left-handed pianist. Franz List noticed his talent and took the young piano virtuoso under his wing and tutored him. Later, they gave several recitals together. As a token of friendship, Franz Liszt composed his piano work No. 456 specifically for left hand.
