"Hetedhéthatár" single-vineyard wines talk and tasting
Ever wanted to know more about single vineyard wines? Well, here is your chance. Tokaji wine expert László Alkonyi, author of several influential books about the region and blogger, has just released his most recent work, a guidebook and map to the vineyards of the Tokaji Wine Region - the first place in the world where a system of vineyard classification was introduced (in the 1730s!). László will open the tasting at 11am with a short talk, and together with his map he will help us better understand the mysteries of terroir, and its influence on the wines. The title? Hetedhéthatár refers to a mythical land, so it's certainly appropriate for the magical land of Tokaj.
László suggested a number of superb wineries, large and small, to invite to the Tokaj-Hegyalja Tasting (held in parallel with the Tokaj-Hegyalja Market) on the 10th June. We are delighted to announce that the following will be joining us:
We are very excited. What a wonderful opportunity to meet the winemakers who will present their single vineyard wines! A shared space for us to taste some of the best the land has to offer - with a little help from skilled hands too, of course.
It promises to be a wonderful tasting, so do come and join us if you can.

Time - 11am - 3pm (the market is from 10am to 5pm)
