Louis XIV himself
proclaimed it the "Wine of Kings and King of
Wines". For hundreds of years Tokaji
Asz˙ has graced the tables of the elite across Europe.
Tokaji Asz˙ is a fine, very sweet wine normally served as a
dessert wine. Its unique taste comes from the nurturing of
late grapes and a fortunate combination of weather
conditions around the vineyards.
Tokaji (sometimes mis-spelled Tokay) is named for Tokaj, a hilly, fertile
region in northeastern Hungary. Pronounced "Tokay," the addition of the
i gives the wines their name, which means literally "from" or "of Tokaj."
After being hoarded by the Soviet communist elite, who attempted to inflate production levels, the fall of the eastern bloc and subsequent foreign investment has seen the reputation of Tokaji Asz˙ reinstated, and the wine returned to its rightful place among the world's finest.
