ROYAL Tokaji

The Royal Tokaji Wine Company, founded in Hungary in 1990, has become one of the most defining wineries in Tokaj. From the outset, Royal Tokaji decided to concentrate on producing single-vineyard wines, made from the first growth vineyards of Mézes Mály, Nyulászó, Szt. Tamás and Betsek. Acknowledged as one of the region's top winemakers, combining traditional techniques with modern technology to create the award-winning Royal Tokaji range of wines. Royal Tokaji is the acknowledged leader of the renaissance of this legendary Hungarian wine, which, in the words of the wine author and company co-founder Hugh Johnson, is "a wine that would make angels sing out loud in praise".

Royal Tokaji was inspired and founded by Hugh Johnson, the noted author and wine historian, whose goal was to revive and bring back to international acclaim the wines of one of history’s most renowned wine regions. Royal Tokaji remains in private ownership and today our wines are exported to more than 30 countries. The wines of Royal Tokaji have won over 100 international awards and continue to seduce wine lovers throughout the world.

Tokaj

The Tokaj winegrowing area is the first closed winegrowing area in the world - from 1737 - and since 2002 it has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The volcanic bedrock of the vineyard, the sunny slopes and the microclimate determined by the rivers Tisza and Bodrog together support the formation of the noble mold (Botrytis Cinerrea), which is essential for the subsequent eruption.

The noble basement mold (Cladosporium cellare) thickly covering the walls of the cellars - unlike the noble mold - is found here and in the wine cellars on the Rhine all over the world. This mushroom plays an important role in the quality of the Tokaj wines, because the unique taste of fresh bread, the fragrance, the bouquet, the dark golden color and the relatively high alcohol content around 14% by volume of the outbreak are due to its activity. It became world famous in 1703, when Prince Franz Rákóczi II gave an outburst to the French King Louis XIV, who apostrophized it as follows: "Le vin des rois et le roi des vins", better known in Latin: "vinum regum, rex vinorum", d. H. "Wine of Kings, King of Wines".

From that time on he became a highly esteemed drink of kings, czars, well-known artists (Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Frederick II, Voltaire, Goethe, Mozart and Schubert) and one of the most successful means of diplomacy. To his success contributed to the widespread in the 15th century among doctors that his consumption has a healing, regenerative effect, with, he came with the name VINUM TOKAJENSE PASSUM also on the shelves of pharmacies.
