Wine tour

Birthplace of Tokaji Aszú, this legendary wine region in north-eastern Hungary is named after the town of Tokaj, its former commercial centre. Its a relatively small region of around 5,500 hectares of vineyards which encompasses 27 towns and villages. It was declared one of the first appellations in the world (in 1737!) and has been famous for its Tokaji Aszú, a noble sweet wine, for centuries. Its winemaking culture and traditions are honoured by its inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage since 2002.

Over the last twenty-five years fresh energy has been pulsing through its veins. This dynamism is bringing exciting wines – both sweet and dry – from the six permitted grape varieties, mainly Furmint and Hárselvelű. But the region is not all about wine. It offers local artisan food and friendly village houses as well as luxurious five-star hotels. What to do? Experience the cultural events and festivals as well as spas and thermal baths, castles and museums, river sports and adventure parks. Tokaj is on the move again!
