Tokaj region wine tour
TOUR | 3 days 2 nights | Spend some days in Tokaj, Hungary’s world famous UNESCO world heritage site! Tokaj gained its reputation as the producer of the Tokaji Aszú wine, which has been made for 450 years as "the king of wines and the wine of kings". The Tokaji wine is the prestige brand of Hungary, unique and excellent. But Tokaj means much more; it is the region, the town, the people, the winemaking traditions and white wines of different categories. Walk around the lovely vineyards, learn about vintages and the diversity of the volcanic soils, meet the winemakers and explore the hundred years old cellars. Taste the finest dry single vineyards Furmints, search for apricot, lime or quince flavours in the late harvest, dry fruits and honey in the nectar-like Aszú wines.
