Hungary has several important wine-producing regions, all of which benefit from mineral-rich soils that are fed by the mighty Danube and Tisza rivers, or are located on the shores of Lake Balaton, Europe’s largest lake. Hungary’s climate is ideal for viticulture – long, extremely hot summers followed by mild autumns and late winters have produced products unique to the country for over a thousand years, dating back to Roman times. Today, Hungary is mainly known for its sweet white wines, mainly from the Tokaj region, where the grapes are given over to noble rot which intensifies the sugars and flavors, and results in surprising wines of exceptional character and aroma.
Disznókö is a legendary winery in the Tokaj-Hegyalja region, known for its sweet wines of noble rot, as well as the very high quality standards and the fusion of tradition and modernity. In 1992, the winery opened facilities where they combine cutting-edge winemaking practices and ancestral traditions of the region.
