Tokaji: wine of kings

“Tokaji, wine of kings, King among the wines” called King Louis IV centuries ago. Tokaji Aszú is a dessert wine made from overripe grapes. Tokaji wines are prepared in a special way. A part of the grapes is allowed to dry out and affected by the autumn mist. The layer of fungus that is soon around this period is essential for the production of the pearl of the Hungarian wine culture. Grapes are grape picked and graded manually for grape. Nowadays people make more than excellent dry wines from the same grapes. Because of their volcanic terroir and excellent climate, these grapes give a very specific aroma and flavor to the dry Tokaji (wine from Tokaj).
