The final blends were carefully crafted in the spring of 2020.

Tokaji is the world’s original sweet white wine.
Royal Tokaji is devoted to reviving these great wines.

The Royal Tokaji Wine Company, founded in Hungary in 1990, has become one of the most defining wineries in Tokaj. From the outset, Royal Tokaji decided to concentrate on producing single-vineyard wines, made from the first growth vineyards of Mézes Mály, Nyulászó, Szt. Tamás and Betsek. Acknowledged as one of the region's top winemakers, combining traditional techniques with modern technology to create the award-winning Royal Tokaji range of wines. Royal Tokaji is the acknowledged leader of the renaissance of this legendary Hungarian wine, which, in the words of the wine author and company co-founder Hugh Johnson, is "a wine that would make angels sing out loud in praise".

Royal Tokaji was inspired and founded by Hugh Johnson, the noted author and wine historian, whose goal was to revive and bring back to international acclaim the wines of one of history’s most renowned wine regions.

Royal Tokaji remains in private ownership and today our wines are exported to more than 30 countries.

The wines of Royal Tokaji have won over 100 international awards and continue to seduce wine lovers throughout the world.

The Terroir
It is a clay and volcanic land with an ideal microclimate to bring the legendary noble rot to its indigenous grape varieties. Ten million years ago, the area was full of volcanoes. Wines from each one of these vineyards can have very different characteristics so winegrowers love to produce wines from a single vineyard.

This unique terroir with its mouldy, labyrinthine underground cellars contributes to the distinct personality of its noble wines.

The Tokaji grape varieties
Six varieties of grapes are allowed to be grown in Tokaji. The most highly regarded indigenous varieties are Furmint and Hárslevelű. Other varieties grown to a lesser extent are Sárga Muskotály, Kövérszölö, Zéta and Kabar. Only these varieties can be used for a Tokaji.

Eternal Wines
The high levels of sugar and acidity also make for wines capable of long-term ageing. In the correct conditions bottles can continue to evolve and develop for decades and there are many accounts of exceptionally old bottles being opened and enjoyed.
