History and teachings
The Tokaj Wine Region is home to some of Hungary’s most beloved varieties of wine. The region is spread over a romantic landscape of cellar labyrinths, wines and slopes, nestled at the foothills of the Zemplén Mountains. Its winemaking history dates back over a thousand years. Historical records show that vineyards had been established in Tokaj as early as the 12th century, but there is evidence for the earlier introduction of wine production to the region. Tokaj has been declared a World Heritage Site in 2002 under the name Tokaj Wine Region Historic Cultural Landscape.
It is the origin of Tokaji aszú wine, the world’s oldest botrytized wine.
Visiting the Tokaj Wine Region is recommended for adults. Rather general cultural and gastronomic experience. Does not require prior knowledge but awareness about alcohol consuming is recommended. Prices depend on the quality of the service but generally affordable.
The historical wine region located in north-eastern Hungary and south-eastern Slovakia. Its centre, Tokaj town is 230 km far from Budapest, accessible by direct train in 3 hours. Easily accessible; only limited mobility can be a challenge. Some service providers speak a foreign language.
