„A remarkable wine made from well-botrytised Muscat grapes with honey-rich flavours developed by the loess soil. A world-class wine.“
David Copp in his book
"Tokaj - a Companion for the Bibulous Traveller" (2007)

Szent Kereszt dülo , the "Holy Cross" hill, is part of Tarcal's northern portion of the Tokaj Kopasz mountain, and borders on the Nyulás dülö. Although not particularly classified in 1798 or 1867, this vineyard existed already in 1737. At that time, the Szepes County Chamber bestowed the vineyard upon the Piarist Order. Some time before their acquisition, the Pettkó family was a prominent owner of Szent Kereszt. The name of the vineyard might refer to a cloister, which existed on the hill earlier.

Just Said ...

„Listen then, your grace; his majesty the King of Sweden -
I beg pardon, the Count Haga
I should have said - drinks nothing but tokay.” - „Well, am I so poor as to have no tokay in my cellar? If so, I must dismiss my butler.”
from „The Queen's Necklace”
