Arriving from Fogaras, the Greek merchant family settled in Hungary in the 16th century. The Constantinus dynasty lived in Tolcsva, and played a major role in creating a flourishing wine culture in the municipality. A memorial plaque is placed on the house wall.
Vine-growing and wine-making tools are displayed on the ground floor of the renewed house. The collection ranges from 15th century, excavated tools to recently used pieces. The exhibition contains 17th century pruning tools, press tools from the beginning of the 19th century, glass bottles from Regéc for Tokaji wines, and also several publications on viticulture and oenology.
Visitors can also learn about the phylloxera epidemic and mass production of wines. Due to contributions by locals, the collection is growing gradually.
The rooms on the top floor host temporary exhibitions, and from 2014, a permanent photo gallery titled Living Past introduces the old and new faces of Tolcsva.
