About the Producer
The Royal Tokaji Wine Company is acknowledged as one the best producers in Hungary and combine traditional wine-making methods with modern technology to create their award-winning wines.
Their vineyards enjoy long summers and early morning autumnal mists which roll in from the Bodrog and Tisza Rivers. These damp conditions encourage the growth on Noble Rot on the grapes causing them to dry and shrivel. This concentrates the grape sugars and wonderful aromatic flavours inside resulting in naturally raisinated grapes called Aszú which produce wines of remarkable intensity.
Admired throughout history, it is said that Tokaji was so revered by the Russian Tsar Peter the Great that he dispatched Cossacks to ensure the wine’s safe passage to St Petersburg. Production dried up during the Communist era but the Royal Tokaji Company, an Anglo-Hungarian consortium formed after the fall of Communism, has played a major part in Tokaji’s resurgence. So chill down and pour yourself a glass of history. Enjoy every sip!
