Hungarian Tokaj white wines have evolved, from the golden times in the XVIIIth and XIXth centuries through to the beginning of the XXth century. Tokaj vineyards were owned by the aristocratic families, then nationalized after the Second World War.
Since the 1990s, the production has progressed with quality and excellence winning the day, offering a great diversity, from dry wines to fine sweet wines.
The Tokaji Aszù is a wine of inspiration. Dozens of writers from all around the world have written on this unique wine : Léon Tolstoï, Pablo Néruda, Honoré de Balzac, Gustave Flaubert, Diderot, Voltaire who was fond of it. Rossini and Schubert would compose their work with a glass on the piano…
Tokaj and Porto fight over the first appellation of origin in the world.
It is also the heart and soul of Hungarian: the tokaj is the only wine to be quoted in a national anthem.
The Tokaj region has been classified as Cultural World Heritage at the Unesco in 2002.
