The Tokaj wine region, officially called Tokaj-Hegyalja, was declared a world heritage site in 2002 and as producer of the world’s oldest botrytized wines it has a number of unparalleled assets:

  • incomparable soil and microclimate: clay or loess soil on top off volcanic subsoil, a microclimate determined by the sunny, south-facing slopes and the proximity of the Tisza and Bodrog rivers, conducive to the proliferation of Botrytis Cinerea (noble rot) and the subsequent shriveling of the grapes (that leads to the development of aszú);
  • indigenous grape varieties that have been cultivated here for centuries: Furmint, Hárslevelû, and Sárga Muskotály;
  • a vast network of cellars carved out of solid rock, providing a constant temperature of around 12°C and high humidity of around 95% that is ideal for the aging of the wines;
