Royal Tokaji winery is a highly prestigious wine estate located in the Tokaj wine region of Hungary. Its history dates back to the 17th century when the region became the world’s first to produce botrytized sweet wine on a large scale. In the early 20th century, Royal Tokaji was founded by a family of British investors who were captivated by the region’s potential and winemaking tradition. The winery specializes in the production of sweet wines made from hand-harvested botrytized grapes, following traditional Hungarian techniques.
The most notable wine from Royal Tokaji is the Royal Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos, an exquisite wine made from Furmint and Hárslevelű grapes. This wine is the result of a meticulous winemaking process that involves the careful selection of botrytized grapes and fermentation in Hungarian oak barrels.
The Royal Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos is a sweet and complex wine with notes of honey, apricot, and citrus, balanced by vibrant acidity and distinctive minerality. It is considered by many as one of the finest sweet wines in the world and has been awarded numerous international accolades and recognition. Ultimately, it is the emblem of Royal Tokaji’s winemaking excellence and the Tokaj region as a whole.
