Tokaji Asz˙

Wine of Kings,  King of Wines

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.
