Tokaj-Hegyalija is renowned as one of the finest wine producing regions of the world. Its volcanic soils coupled with a micro climate defined by great slopes and the Tisza and Bodrog rivers, provide an ideal environment for viticulture.
The famous botrytised sweet wines that are Tokaji Aszú were first created back in the early 17th century.
The Gróf Degenfeld Winery is one of the leading wineries in the Tokaj-Hegyalja region and is a member of the Tokaji Renaissance Association. There are 30ha devoted to the cultivation of Furmint, Hárslevelű and Sárgamuskotály (Muscat Lunel) grapes.
The overall philosophy of the winery can be characterised by four terms: quality, naturalness, respect for tradition and nobility.
