Why is Tokaj wine unique in the world? Take a look behind the scenes of Tokaj!

The Tokaj wine region is located on the territory of two countries - Slovakia and Hungary. The Slovak part has an area of ​​approximately 908 hectares and extends around 7 municipalities - Slovenské Nové Mesto, Veľká Tňa, Malá Tňa, Černochov, Bara, Viničky and Borša.

What makes Tokaj so special? It is a combination of favorable natural conditions that create an ideal environment for growing vines. The Tokaj vineyards rest on a volcanic bedrock that gives them mineral strength. The soil is rich in clay, volcanic stone and pumice, which gives the wines an unmistakable character. The local climate with a long, warm autumn season and the frequent occurrence of the noble mold Botrytis cinerea enables the creation of rare Tokaj selections and Pilgrimage wines.

But Tokaj is not only about favorable conditions. It is also the story of the people who shaped the local winegrowing tradition for centuries. Their hardworking hands cultivate the vineyards with love and dedication, pouring their passion and experience into every drop of wine. Tokaj winemakers guard the heritage of their ancestors and at the same time bring innovative procedures to push the art of winemaking forward.

Every sip tells a story about the land, people and tradition. They are wines that conquered the world with their uniqueness and nobility. The royal courts of Europe reached for Tokaj wines, poets wrote odes about them and gourmets paid tribute to them. And this story continues to this day...
